Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Secretary DK Tiwari has directed the industries secretary to remove all the shops which are being run in industrial areas of the state. In a meeting with the representatives of all the Industries Association from across the state he said that in the industrial area separate places would be allocated for setting up of hotels and hospitals and also assured the Association that to remove the problems in the power sector the government was seriously thinking to handover it to the private parties and said that soon in some areas electricity management would be given to private sector.
