The Taiwan-based company had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Devendra Fadnavis-led government in August 2015 and had offered an investment of $5 billion.Fadnavis had said earlier that Foxconn will create the direct employment of 50000 people through the MoU A senior official told Firstpost that the MoU is on the verge of being cancelled "We are planning to give the proposed site to another investor Foxconn was a dream project under Make in Maharashtra It is sad that after two years it remains on paper" Subhash Desai further said that some other companies in the electronic sector are ready to invest in the state "Presently investment from 44 new industries from the electronics sector is on the cards We hope that these investments will generate Rs 30400 crore will create about 1 lakh employment opportunities However it is important to remember that it takes at least three to five years for any industry to settle down" In October last year Firstpost had reported that Foxconn was likely to back out of its investment in the state At the time the absence of customers was believed to be a reason for this Apurva Chandra Principal secretary for Maharashtra’s Department of Industry Energy and Labour had then said "We do not think this is disappointing as yet as we would like to give them some more time before coming to a decision" The Maharashtra government has recently completed three years in power and a major focus for it was augmenting investment in the state Devendra Fadnavis in his address during the Make In India Week in Mumbai in February 2016 had said that a task force headed by the state industry minister would be set up to ensure that the MoUs signed during the programme get translated into actual investments Desai said that while MoUs worth Rs 8 lakh crore were made in February investments of about 4 lakh crore have had concrete progress However he did not give details about the investment of Rs 4 lakh crore The Opposition has also questioned the government over the status of the investment in the past Congress leader and former chief minister Ashok Chavan had said in October 2016 that he had expressed apprehensions that the MoU would be controversial during the company’s visit to Maharashtra and that he was proven right "During the Congress rule we secured more foreign investments without resorting to jumlas of this kind" Chavan had said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party had informed its friends about the impending ban on Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes before hand and claimed that he has evidence to prove his charge He also demanded a complete rollback of the move as it is creating panic among common people and giving rise to rumours of shortage in essential commodities Arvind Kejriwal AFP file photo The allegation is likely to put the ruling BJP on the backfoot as the common man’s anger against the move is being displayed in complaints in the media and social media despite experts saying that this is in the interest of the public good in the long term though there is likely to be short-term pain The allegations also come at a time when the people are thronging banks and ATMs to withdraw and deposit cash The government had kept the banks shut for one day and ATMs for two days after the announcement in order to prepare for the rush for cash Here are the key points Kejriwal made in the press conference today: 1) BJP informed their friends about demonetisation The party is lying and many in the party knew about demonetisation that was to take place I have evidence that will put the government on the backfoot 2) There has been a huge increase in bank deposits in the July-September quarter this year compared with earlier quarters During the quarter the bank deposits rose by a record Rs 665 lakh crore to Rs 10208 lakh crore SBI’s deposits have shown a huge jump in the quarter How did deposits jump to such large numbers Who did it It is because the BJP alerted their friends about demonetisation The government needs to tell us who they had warned among friends about this announcement about black money 3) Some people say that the reason for the increase is the income declaration scheme (IDS) that was open from June to September But these deposits don’t come to banks It goes to the government exchequer So this jump in deposits is not because of IDS It clearly indicates that the government had told its friends in the BJP about the demonetization scheme earlier 4) Sanjeev Kamboj co-convenor BJP law and legal affairs Punjab had revealed on Twitter pictures of Rs 2000 notes on 6 November However the government made the announcement on 8 November evening about demonetisation of Rs 500 Rs 1000 and that they would be introducing Rs 2000 notes which would be available from 10 November Then how did Kamboj get the currency two days before the announcement It reveals that the BJP’s friends had got the help from the government while the rest of the country was put into distress with the announcement 5) This announcement was made to weed out black money but it will not come into the system at all Instead it will change hands and will be redistributed For instance if you have Rs 10000 crore in black money and the government says to you that when you put that money into your account the government will deduct 30 percent tax and impose 200 percent penalty that means 90 percent of your money has gone You stand to get only 10 percent- only Rs 1 crore while the rest will be taken by the government I don’t think anyone in this country who has black money will opt for it 6) If you have black money you can buy dollars and there are many brokers willing to change it for you Dollars are be exchanged at higher prices of Rs 120 The other way of doing it is by buying gold or real estate If you have no one to help you to change your black money you can opt for these three measures — buy dollars gold or invest in real estate So if you opt for these ways you can wipe off 50 percent of your black money?
