Jharkhand has huge quantity of mineral resources : Munda

Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda today said the state has huge quantity of mineral resources including uranium which could be used to produce nuclear energy to solve the state’s power problem.

“Jharkhand could produce 1000 mw of nuclear energy as it has sufficient quantity of uranium but it was deprived of the facility,” he told a function in Saraikela-Kharswan district.

Munda asked all the political parties to come together to solve the power problem of the state and said he would soon convene a meeting of all the members of Parliament of the state soon on the issue of cooperation from the Union government in the power sector.

The Chief Minister said the state government alongwith Khadi Gram Udyog and National Institute of Fashion Designing (NIFD) was imparting training to 5000 people mostly women in Kharswan, the home constituency of Munda, to produce good quality silk products.

He said the Kolkhan region of the state particularly Sareikela-Kharswan was the largest producer of cocoon and has plenty of oppurtunity to develop silk products.

Munda said his government would construct two lakh houses under the Deen Dayal Awas Yojana scheme as it was committed to provide a shelter for each poor family in the state.
