Shift Nanar project to Vidarbha, says BJP MLA

BJP MLA Ashish Deshmukh on Friday demanded in the Assembly that the Nanar refinery project should be shifted to Vidarbha from the coastal Ratnagiri district. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said shifting the refinery was not possible, but the State government would recommend that an inland refinery be set up in the region. “Nanar refinery is being opposed by local people.
