Title: Regarding establishment of an alumina plant in Sringavarapukota in Andhra Pradesh with the help of Middle-East companies.
SHRI M.V.V.S. MURTHI (VISAKHAPATNAM): Mr. Speaker, Sir, it is one of the important issues connected with my Constituency, Visakhapatnam. There were plenty of bauxite deposits in the Eastern Ghats, in East Godavari, Vizag and Vizianagaram districts. Several surveys have been conducted recently. Some Middle-East parties have come forward to establish an alumina plant in Sringavarapukota in Boddavara. We can establish this plant, if the Government of India takes a little more interest. We need not invest any money in it. The Middle-East companies are interested in investing the money. We can produce bauxite and alumina and export them. By exporting, we will earn foreign exchange. More over, in the backward districts of East Godavari, Vizag and Vizianagaram, we can find a lot of employment opportunities.
