Shah to lay foundation stone for India’s fifth nano urea plant in Deoghar on Saturday
Ranchi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah is scheduled to visit Jharkhand’s Deoghar on Saturday during which he will lay the foundation stone for a nano urea plant, the fifth in the country, and address a BJP rally.
Shah will also take part in the centenary year celebrations of Ramakrishna Mission Vidyapeeth, besides paying obeisance at the famed Baba Baidyanath Temple, as per an official statement.
“The home minister is scheduled to lay the foundation stone of Rs 450 nano urea plant complex including a Rs 300 crore plant. Due to infrastructure bottlenecks here, IFFCO is setting up a township also,” the company’s Managing Director U S Awasthi told PTI.
Nano urea improves crop productivity, soil health, and nutritional quality of produce and aims to address the imbalanced and excessive use of conventional urea.
This will be the fifth nano urea plant in the country. Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the world’s first nano urea plant in Gujarat last year, according to IFFCO.
Shah will then address a Vijay Sankalp Rally of the BJP, an opposition party in Jharkhand.
He will also be participating in the centenary year celebrations of Ramakrishna Mission Vidyapeeth from 4 pm, as per the official statement.
