MP backs new cement plant for Chamba district
04 May 2018

Shanta Kumar, Member Parliament, of the BJP has stated that the demand for a cement plant in the Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh, India, should soon be met. He hopes plans will be fulfilled by October this year.

The plant is likely to be established in the Sikridhar area. The state has 12 districts with Chamba sharing borders with Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir. With not much income sources in the area, Chamba has been ranked at 90 and 95 positions for education and infrastructure, respectively. The BJP MP, while campaigning during the last parliamentary elections, had stated that a cement plant was the only solution to eradicate poverty and unemployment in the district.

"It is the most favourable time when the BJP is in power both at the Centre as well as the state. The government has been decided that a cement plant would be inaugurated before October this year," Shanta Kumar said while addressing local media.
