At least 14 Bengal-based businessmen have expressed their willingness to invest close to Rs 5,000 crore in Haryana, Chief Minister, Manohar Lal, has said.

Speaking to presspersons post a road-show to promote his State, Lal said: "This is a wish-list and not a final commitment. I have met 14 industrialists so far and proposals worth Rs 5,000 cr have come up for discussion."

Some of the industrialists who met the Haryana CM include officials of ITC Ltd and India Power Ltd, Gyanesh Chaudhary of Vikram Solar, Amit Saraogi of Anmol Feeds, Ashis Ray of mJunction, and Lalit Beriwala of Shyam Steel, among others.

Sectors include food processing, steel, power and distribution and manufacturing, among others.

"Availability of land is not an issue there. We have enough with the government — close to 10,000 acres, while we also facilitate or hand-hold industrialists in case they want to buy land directly from farmers," he added.
