Lucknow: UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said every citizen of India is getting the benefits of government schemes without any discrimination. Our government did the work of increasing the pension of Divyangjan. Today in Uttar Pradesh, more than 10 lakh Divyangjans are getting Rs 12000 as monthly pension annually. The government is working continuously for the welfare of all. Prime Minister Modi’s mantra of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas tells the story of a new India. He said that Prime Minister Modi has instilled a new enthusiasm among Divyangjans by calling the word handicapped as Divyang. I respect all of them that by forgetting their suffering, Divyangjan are contributing for the country and society.
CM Yogi said these things on the occasion of ‘Inauguration of Second Tournament of Sardar Patel National Disabled T20 Cup’ organized at Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Stadium on the occasion of 147th birth anniversary of Iron Man Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. During this, CM Yogi also honored the disabled players. In his address, CM Yogi thanked the event’s brand ambassador, Padma Shri, Khel Ratna and Arjuna award-winning athlete Deepa Malik and said that she is an inspiration to millions.
Referring to the sage Ashtavakra, he said that his mantras provide a new light not only to India but to the whole world. While telling about Surdas, he said that he had spread the light of devotion to Lord Krishna through his poetry.
CM Yogi said that the present period is also full of such personalities. The famous physicist Stephen Hawking, through his theory of the universe, made the scientists of the world iron. He said that our government is running many programs for the welfare of Divyangjan, including training, scholarships for Divyangjan. CM Yogi said that sports programs connect us with team spirit. If this spirit is not there in the game then no team can be successful no matter how many talented players are there. But when there is mutual coordination in the team then that team also does Vijay Shree Varna. To make the country Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat, we have to take the message of national unity to the people with team spirit. So that every citizen of the state can become aware of his country, motherland and duties.
