BHUBANESWAR: Refuting the allegation levelled by certain senior executives of Posco-India, the State Government on Friday said it has no negative attitude towards the South Korean steel major’s proposed 12 mtpa greenfield steel facility near Paradip.

  “We have extended all support to Posco-India’s project. The State has no negative attitude towards the project and its developer,” Chief Secretary B K Patnaik said.

  The State Government’s remark came a day after Posco-India’s Chairman-cum-Managing Director (CMD) Yong-Won Yoon expressed apprehension over the State Government’s attitude towards the project at a seminar held at Paradip, about 12 km from the project site.
