PM Narendra Modi:
This morning, I inaugurated Vanijya Bhawan.
4 years ago I had laid the foundation stone for this building.
Timely completion of development projects and other important infrastructure is the established SOP in our Government.
Sharad Pawar – President, NCP:
Maha Vikas Aghadi did a good job for two and a half years. Many important decisions were taken.
The health department has done a very good job in times of national crisis like the Corona. Therefore, if anyone says that the experiment of Maha Vikas Aghadi was not successful, it is political ignorance.
Whether the government is in minority or not is proved in the Assembly. I believe this government will be prove its majority when the floor test is held in the Legislative Assembly.
Also I have seen this kind of situation many times in Maharashtra. I am sure that this time too the government will prove its majority
The whole country will see that the Maharashtra government will run under the leadership of Shri Uddhav Thackeray.
In an interview to a news channel, Eknath Shinde said that he has the support of one national party. I have the list of all the parties in the country.
The list includes six official national parties in the country, according to the Election Commission.
The six parties are BJP, Congress, CPI, CPM, BSP and NCP.
There is no question of Congress, CPI, CPM, BSP and NCP helping Shinde. So everyone knows which is the remaining national party.
Shiv Sena MLAs will have to come to the state. I do not think that the leaders of Assam and Gujarat will come here and guide them after coming to the assembly premises.
Also, the decision taken by the MLAs who went there is against the anti-defection law, so they will have to bear the consequences.
Apart from that, their constituency will also react. That is why they are giving reasons like not getting funds for the people in the constituency are being put forward. When Chhagan Bhujbal left Shiv Sena and joined Congress, he was accompanied by 12 to 16 people.
When the elections took place, all but one were defeated. This is a previous experience. The possibility of this happening to those who have gone to Assam cannot be ruled out. So the topic of funding was raised to tell our people something.
Manish Sisodia – Dy CM, Delhi:
Delhi Govt’s 23-acre pond project for ground water recharge at Palla floodplains has been a phenomenal success – adding 4500+ million litres to Delhi’s water table in 2021

Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas:
ONGC Videsh Limited (OVL), the wholly owned subsidiary and overseas arm of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. (ONGC), the National Oil Company of India, has made an oil discovery in the recently drilled well, Urraca-IX, in CPO-5 block, Llanos Basin, Colombia.
Well, Urraca-1X was spudded on 20th April 2022 and drilled to target depth (TD) of 10956 ft., encountering 17 ft thick oil-bearing sands at a depth from 10201ft -10218 ft.
During initial testing with Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP), fluid flowed @ approx. 600 bbl./day with around 40-50% W/C and oil of 16oAPI.
Oil discovery in the Lower Mirador play in this well opens up new areas for further exploration in the northern part of the block.
ONGC Videsh has earlier discovered commercial oil in the Lower Sand pay in Mariposa and Indico fields in the block in 2017 and 2018 respectively, which are currently commercially producing @ 20,000 bbl oil per day.
Block CPO-5 was awarded to ONGC Videsh Limited in the 2008 bid round of Colombia.
ONGC Videsh holds 70% participating interest (PI) in the block along with operatorship, remaining 30% is held by partner Geopark.
ONGC Videsh has a significant presence in oil & gas sector in Colombia, with three other exploratory blocks in the country and joint ownership of the oil producing company Mansarovar Energy Colombia Ltd (MECL).
Oil discovery in a new play in the block with the well Urraca-1X, reiterates the technical and operational prowess of ONGC Videsh and adds one more feather in its cap towards the extensive Exploration and Drilling campaign in Colombia.
