The CM,in a press release,has welcomed the PMs assurance on the development issue of Kanpur and requested him to revive the closed industrial units that were set up by the Centre in the past.
Reacting to the Singhs reference to power problem in UP during his speech at a conference at Merchant Chambers of Uttar Pradesh in Kanpur on Saturday,the CM said the state has got the power problem in its legacy. She said her government has already issued a white paper in this regard on July 18,2009.
She said it was wrong to blame the state government for delay in approval of the two proposed power plants in the state. She also justified her demand for 90 per cent share of the power from the two proposed plants.
She said the state government is supposed to make arrangement for resources like land and water for the two power projects.
The CM said her government is making best efforts for the development of Kanpur Nagar with its limited resources.
