New Delhi: Malaysia is keen to invest around $30 billion in urban development and housing projects in India.


The interest was expressed during the meeting of a 30-member Malaysian delegation led by Malaysia’s Works Mionister Haji Fadillah Bin Haji Yusof with Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu in New Delhi on Thursday.

“Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), a government agency of Malaysia, has proposed to invest $30 billion in urban development and housing projects in India,” the urban development ministry said in a statement.

Yusof said, “The unfolding India is very exciting and that is the reason for coming here with a huge 30-member delegation of senior representatives of 12 leading government and private companies of Malaysia.”

While making presentations to Naidu, the Malaysian agency proposed to redevelop New Delhi railway station’s adjoining area as a mini-smart city with an investment of about $24 billion along with taking up a green city project worth $4 billion at Garhmukhteshwar in Uttar Pradesh.

Appreciating Malaysia’s interest, Naidu directed the National Buildings Construction Corporation (NBCC) to make detailed presentations to the concerned authorities for further consideration.

The delegation included senior representatives of government agencies such as CIDB, Malaysian Highway Authority(LLM), Pembinan and EXIM Bank.

Meanwhile, a 20-member Chinese delegation also called on Naidu on Thursday and held discussions on investment opportunities in the new urban sector initiatives in India.

The delegation, led by SANY group chairman Liang Wengen, comprised representatives of 9 public and private sector companies of China, including State Power Investment Corporation and Power Construction Corporation of China.

SANY group is China’s number one and world’s fifth largest construction machinery manufacturer with a market cap of $21 billion.

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
