Apart from the Rs 43,129 cr Barmer refinery set to be inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi on Tuesday, the Vasundhara Raje government here is looking at coming up with a petrochemical complex that will house a number of PVC, packaging, agriculture, textiles, fertiliser, pesticides, paint, rubber and cosmetics companies and a plastic park too with a range of ancillary companies.

Today, the Prime Minister of India visited Rajasthan's Barmer district.

Modi's Barmer visit has set off a competition among BJP leaders in Rajasthan to show their clout. "As in 2022 we complete 75 years of independence, we will ensure that our refinery starts functioning in the same year", Modi said.

It was noted that in 2013, then Congress President Sonia Gandhi along with then Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot had led the foundation stone of the Barmer oil refinery.

With this refinery operational, at least "Rs 1 lakh crore has been planned for generating employment in the region by 2025", he informed.

He took a dig at the Congress, saying: "We don't want people to come and ask us that after installing the stone why you did not take action on implementing the same".

The Congress says that the foundation stone for the Barmer refinery was laid by then party chief Sonia Gandhi when the Ashok Gehlot government was in power in 2013, and blames the Raje government for delaying the project.

The BJP alleged that Gehlot government fooled people of Rajasthan by announcing a refinery on paper without any statutory clearances while no work was done on the ground. He will unveil a plaque to mark commencement of work and is expected to address the gathering before returning to Delhi. "We are doing this with a lot of planning".

"In 2013 Congress mocked the aspirations & emotions of the youth of Rajasthan by announcing a Refinery only on Paper without any statutory clearances", Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said.
