Confirming the interest of Maruti Suzuki ltd in Gujarat, the chairman of the company RC Bhargava said, “The Gujarat chief minister’s approach is more of a facilitator of industry coming into Gujarat – that goes in favour of Gujarat,”
RC Bhargava also said, “We are in negotiations with the Gujarat government to set up new production plant in Modi’s state. Like many other industry leaders, Mr. Bharagava also praised Modi’s abilityto draw new business projects in the favour of Gujarat.
In an exclusive interview with NDTV’s Shweta Rajpal Kohli, Mr. Bhargava also told that the talks between the workers and the management will continue for some more time since such issues don’t get resolved in one day.
“Rejecting the reports about Maruti moving out of Gujarat, he said, “We also have no plan to move out of Haryana as yet.”
Maruti Suzuki is producing roughly half of what it has been supposed to produce – meaning it is not producing 1700-1800 cars a day. Thus, MSI is losing Rs. 55 crore a day as a result of the strike. Maruti’s manufacturing plants in Gurgaon and Manesar, put together, have production capacity of 1.7 million vehicles.
