As we do this, we need to keep in mind that the pain of those having to make direct sacrifice by loss of land and other assets that support their livelihood is assuaged in a comprehensive & compassionate manner. Therefore, resettlement and rehabilitation issues will need our first attention.
Alongside, if we are to become global players, industries have to adopt ‘state of the art’ technologies including cleaner production technology and achieve cost effectiveness, quality consistency and timely delivery. The State must acquire a brand value for core concerns, as this alone will sustain its continued growth in the long run. A lot has been done over the last few years which has brought us to a stage where we can dream of a higher growth trajectory.
We all need to work as active members of “Team Odisha” and work together hard and also intelligently. We need to keep our minds open to new ideas and knowledge. More importantly, we need to walk the talk if others are to take us seriously. We have to prepare all our colleagues in our organization to be adequate in all ways in meeting the new challenges. Let us benefit from sharing one another’s views and suggestions and let us all together take things forward.
