Patnaik said the JSPL’s steel plant is a significant milestone and would create enough employment opportunities and help in the State’s progress.
JSPL Chairman Naveen Jindal said, “My father was highly inspired by the vision of the great leader late Biju Patnaik and hence had chosen Odisha as his destination for a world-class steel plant. During those days, I was studying in the US and had met revered Bijubabu along with my father. Biju Patnaik and OP Jindal had dreamt about a mega steel plant in Odisha. We both the sons of those visionary leaders joined hands to make their dream a success.”
The JSPL has invested Rs 35,000 crore in the Angul plant and has created 50,000 jobs, said Jindal.
