Dharamsala, Jun 11 (PTI) Himachal Pradesh should follow the policy of Gujarat in attracting investments to become an industrial hub, Spice Global Chairman B K Modi said here today. "...Himachal should follow the policy of Gujarat of attracting the industrialists (for investment)," he said. Pointing out the loopholes in the infrastructure in the state, Modi said Himachal does not even have an investment office. He said the government must go for privatisation of sectors it wants to expand, like telecom and aviation. "It is in the hand of governments to invite or avoid industry," he said. "So many of the world's top industrialists visit Dalai Lama in Dharamsala every year, if tapped and given respect by the government, Himachal could become the industrial hub," Modi told reporters after a meeting with Buddhist spiritual leader Dalai Lama and Karmapa Lama here. "But lots of them leave the area unnoticed. Himachal should follow the policy of Gujarat of attracting the industrialists (for investment)," he added. Modi, who is now a Singapore national, said he has invested around Rs 1,500-2,000 crore in countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. On his meeting with Dalai Lama, he said, "I met Dalai Lama for around two hours this morning and discussed lots of subjects. Dalai Lama told me that he shall spend next 10 years to work on all the religions of the world". It has also been decided that all the spiritual leaders of India, including Dalai Lama shall meet at Prayaag between December 31 and January 3. A television serial on the life of Buddha with Zee TV is also being planned, he said.
