BHUBANESWAR: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday returned after a six-day visit of New Delhi where he met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and raised several issues, mostly relating to fuel linkage to thermal power projects and early implementation of the proposed ultra mega power project in the State.

Naveen also addressed the second meeting of national Sagarmala apex committee on Sunday and expressed concern over the fact that of the nine plans proposed to the Union Shipping Ministry under the project, only two have been included in the draft national perspective plan (NPP).

The State Government had submitted nine proposals comprising four road connectivity projects, four rail connectivity projects and an industrial park at Dhamara, based on the discussions during the first meeting of the apex committee in October, 2015, he said.

The Chief Minister requested Union Minister for Shipping and Road Transport Nitin Gadkari to include other connectivity proposals and industrial park in the NPP.
