Acharya Balkrishna, Managing Director of Patanjali Ayurved Ltd and co-founder of Patanjali Yogpeeth, tweeted on Tuesday that they have to shift the food park due to the Yogi Adityanath-led state government’s disappointing attitude.
He said Patanjali’s initiative to improve the lives of farmers in the region would not be achieved after this decision.
When the plant runs to its full capacity, it would have a capacity to produce goods worth Rs.25,000 crore annually, an official had claimed in 2016, adding that around 10,000 direct jobs could be provided benefiting 50,000 families.
According to reports, around 455 acres of land was allocated for the Patanjali Food and Herbal Park in Greater Noida and the project was worth around Rs 2,000 crore.
In 2016, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav had laid the foundation of this park.
