Karnataka shifts solar park location due to non-availability of land

According to reports, minister for energy Shobha Karandlaje has said that owing to non-availability of government land and stiff resistance from some people, the government has decided to shift the proposed solar park from Bijapur district to Chitradurga district.

Addressing presspersons here on Friday, she said that since the government had found adequate government land in Chitradurga, it has decided to shift the park from Bijapur.

It may be noted that several people, including district in-charge Minister S.K. Bellubbi, had opposed the decision of the government setting up the park in his Basavana Bagewadi constituency stating that the project would take away huge tracts of agricultural land.
