Terming Punjab as the most preferred investment destination across the country, the Chief Minister said that state’s infra structure has been adjudged excellent by several renowned agencies across the globe. However, he said that due to the prolonged militancy and the step motherly treatment meted out by the successive congress governments, the industrial development of the state has been adversely effected. Mr. Badal further said that the incentives given by the Congress governments to the neighboring states have also given a severe blow to the industry in the state. “But the SAD-BJP government has made stupendous efforts for promoting industrialization in the state, which have been fructified” he added. Earlier, paying rich tributes to Lord Vishwakarma, the Chief Minister said that he was divine architect of the entire universe, who was believed to be the master of all machinery and equipments being used by the people in the industrial activities. Exhorting the people to follow the footsteps of this great Deity of all craftsmen and architects, Mr. Badal said the promotion of skill training across the state would be befitting tribute to the Lord Vishwakarma, who has ever inspired the artisans, workers and labour class to work hard with utmost dedication and commitment to develop the nation. He said that in line with the ideology and teachings of Lord Vishwakarma, the Punjab government has been laying thrust on imparting skill training to the youth across the state so they could live a life with dignity and self respect. The Chief Minister impressed upon the industrialists to make a solemn pledge of making whole hearted efforts for promoting skill training as it would be real tribute to Lord Vishwakarma. Mr. Badal said that it would not only help in generating employment for the youth but would also play a pivotal role in putting the state on high growth trajectory.
