Recent statements causing speculation around the fate of the Tajpur deep sea port project have been clarified by senior West Bengal minister, Sashi Panja. Addressing concerns, Panja assured that discussions with the Adani group are ongoing, reiterating that the project remains firmly on track.
Responding to opposition claims suggesting uncertainty due to Adani’s alleged withdrawal, Panja dismissed these assertions as baseless. “False claims,” she remarked, emphasizing that talks with the Adani group persist and the project remains a priority.
On inquiries about any breakdown in discussions with the Adani group, Panja negated such developments, affirming that the project’s progress remains intact.
The project has sought approval from the Centre, and while clarifications have been requested by the Union government, Panja stressed that this doesn’t derail the project’s trajectory.
Speculation arose following Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s announcement at the Bengal Global Business Summit regarding the launch of a tender for the Tajpur deep sea port’s development. Despite the inference drawn from her statement, Panja assured that the port’s plans are in motion and open for participation.
Reassurances from the Bengal minister dispel uncertainties, reaffirming the Adani Group’s involvement and the continued advancement of the Tajpur deep sea port project.
