A credit war for bringing Spanish investment in Punjab, broke out between Congress-led Punjab government and Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal — and both took to Twitter claiming credit for the plant that is expected to process 80,000 metric tonnes (MT) of vegetables per annum with special focus on potatoes.
Harsimrat said she was confident the project would open a new market for potato growers of Doaba with a processing capacity of 80,000 metric tonnes per annum. “It will also give a boost to vegetable cultivation. More than 5,000 farmers will be benefited directly as the company will procure vegetables locally," she said.
Seeking votes for Harsimrat by invoking her famous dialogue at Maur Mandi and Mansa, Hema said: “Chal dhano basanti ki izzat ka swaal hai... takdi (SAD symbol) pe mohar lagaani hai.” After a rally at Maur Mandi, a roadshow was taken to Mansa, where Hema called Harsimrat her younger sister.
