Indian petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan recently urged Odisha state chief minister Naveen Patnaik in a letter to allot 75 acres land for a textile park proposed by the Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) in Bhadrak. The ₹1,971-crore project can make Bhadrak the Surat of eastern India and generate more investment and job opportunities, he said. A memorandum of understanding was signed between IOCL and the state government regarding the project on November 16, 2017. The IOCL has written several times to the state government requesting for land for the project but has received no response, which is delaying the project, a news agency report quoted the minister as saying.
