Naveen says 6 lakh jobs created after investment of ₹4 lakh crore

Odisha Governor Ganeshi Lal hoisted the national flag at the State-level Republic Day celebrations here on Saturday, while Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik gave an address from the historic Barabati Stadium in Cuttack.

The State-level celebrations saw a parade by police personnel and students of various schools and colleges.

Tableaux showcasing implementation of various welfare schemes and achievements of industrial units rolled their way down Mahatma Gandhi Marg.

As many as 54 contingents and cultural troupes participated in the parade.

Security personnel had been put on high alert in the city since Friday.

“Make in Odisha has given a boost to investors’ confidence. Six lakh new jobs have been generated following grounding of investment to the tune of ₹4,20,000 crore. Successful organisation of 18 Men’s World Cup has helped increase respect of the State in the world arena,” said Mr. Patnaik.

“The newly launched KALIA, a farm development incentive scheme, has proved to be a unique model for agriculture development in the country. This is not my word, agriculture experts have recognised it. As many as 12 lakh farmers have got assistance under the scheme till Friday,” he said.
