"First we thought of Bengaluru, then Hyderabad. Then Eric (Dassault Chairman Eric Trappier) suggested we go to Gujarat, But I said I want to go to Nagpur. Gadkariji first suggested the idea of (having the project at) Nagpur. He said he will banish me from India if I took the project elsewhere," said Ambani in a report published in Economic Times. 

"CM (Fadnavis) said everything I need will be done for the project at Mihan. I don't think there's a better example in ease of doing business. Thank you, Gadkariji for twisting my arm and making me come to Nagpur" he added.
