Title: Need to declare Parbhani district in Maharashtra as an industrially backward and take steps for the speedy development.

SHRI SURESH RAMRAO JADHAV (PARBHANI): Sir, I rise to mention in this august House about Parbhani, Maharashtra. Parbhani is the most backward district of Maharashtra. The best quality cotton is produced in this area and the milk production is also on a very high side in this district. But there is no big industry in this area. in order to give employment to the people of this area and for speedy development of this district, I - through this august House urge upon the Government to declare Parbhani district as an industrially backward district and take immediate necessary steps for the speedy industrial development of this district.
