The parameters to set up industry are on a par with the rest of the country.”

Shah at the annual general meeting of the Indian Chamber of Commerce further added that, “Close to 4,000 extremists have laid down arms and returned to the mainstream and the number of civilian casualties has drastically come down, especially in the last two years.”
