India is going to have its biggest Vodka plant if all goes well. A Russian-based liquor company associated with Delhi-based Newara Enterprises is all set to set up a Vodka plant in Uttar Pradesh. Estimated as Rs 800 Crore, the plant will be set up in the Kannauj, parliamentary constituency of Dimple Yadav, wife of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

The Uttar Pradesh State Industrial Development Corporation is preparing ground to allot 120 acres of land for the project. The project is likely to provide direct employment to 1000 besides boosting the market for potato farmers. Confused? Well, the Vodka will be manufactured from the potatoes grown locally. This is expected to save the local farmers who are underselling their crop due to potato glut.
