by Dikhyaa Mohanty

Business tycoon Anand Mahindra praises the Odisha Government’s latest infrastructure plan and expressed his thoughts regarding the plan via Twitter.

According to the reports, the business tycoon said, “Investments in infrastructure create productive assets and a multiplier effect on economic activity & employment. Infrastructure that can multitask & be deployed during medical & environmental crises (2 greatest future threats) is brilliant”. He has also suggested the other states emulate Odisha’s new infrastructure project.

The Odisha government promised to construct 89 multi-purpose indoor stadiums at different urban areas of the state following India’s recent success at the Tokyo Olympics. Odisha CM Patnaik approved the 89 multi-purpose indoor stadiums with utility for sports, disaster shelters and field hospitals at a total project cost of ₹693.35 crores.

The stadiums to be named as Biju Patnaik Indoor stadium will come up at three municipal corporations (Bhubaneswar, Cuttack and Rourkela), 30 municipalities and 52 NACs and the state government will spend ₹10.15 crores for the construction of each stadium at municipal corporation towns and municipalities while ₹6.40 crore will be spent for building one such stadium in NACs.

The report further added that these stadiums will have facilities for playing badminton, table tennis, yoga, gymnasium, and others. And the stadiums can be utilised as community shelters during disasters like cyclones, floods etc. In times of pandemics, the stadium can be converted into a 50-bed (NAC Model) or 100-bed (Municipality model) field hospital.
