In the process, as a proud Minister for Food Processing Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Minister of State for Food Processing Sadhvi Niranjan, and yoga guru Baba Ramdev beamed, the 918-kg concoction also felled a Guinness World record.
Earlier this month, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had said that industries in the northeastern and Himalayan states will continue to get tax exemption till March 2027, albeit as refund, under current GST regime which was rolled out on July 1.
SGPC president has urged Jaitley that religious cum spiritual places being managed by the SGPC including the Golden Temple, Takhat Kesgarh, Takhat Damdama Sahib where foot fall was in excess of a lakh per day should be exempted from GST for buying food items for langar.
Harsimrat Kaur Badal, who is SAD MP from Bathinda, said the SGPC at Darbar Sahab (Golden Temple) Amritsar spends around Rs 75 crore to purchase desi ghee, sugar and pulses for ‘langar’.
Most of these people (Adani, Nestle, Patanjali etc), who are in organised retail sector, have international brand value for which quality is very important. So, they adopt all international practices of quality control.
“Congratulations to Sidhu saab who calls it ghar wapasi to go to a party that wreaked genocide on the Sikh community,” said Harsimrat.
The SHO said that Raj Kumar told him that Varun was not returning Rs 40,000 of his relative.
In a statement here, Harsimrat said “it was surprising that even as Capt Amarinder was espousing Punjab’s cause and had even today supported the historic decision.”
Speaking at the ongoing Make in India Week in Mumbai Badal had said that in a bid to make India a resilient food economy and the food factory of the world.
The minister said, ‘Maharashtra had immense potential and also readiness for tapping the food processing industries.’
The ministers took questions from a select audience, as they spoke about the drug crisis in Punjab, the terror attack in Pathankot.
The Congress spokesperson claimed that Sukhbir had offered special incentives to investors in the food processing ministry.
Harsimrat Kaur Badal had maintained that the action on Maggi noodles had created an environment of fear in the industry.
Food Minister Badal says the FSSAI is ‘creating fear’. Through June, the FSSAI has sought suggestions, set up a panel to regulate salt, sugar and fat intake, and issued two product-based orders.
Maggi, meanwhile, has cleared regulatory hurdles in some foreign markets, and Nestle recently obtained the go-ahead from the Bombay High Court to export it.
