Lucknow: UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that the new Uttar Pradesh of new India does not run away seeing challenges, it faces them. During the biggest pandemic of the century, Corona, when the migrants faced the crisis of migration, Uttar Pradesh supported everyone. Be it migrant or resident, everyone’s safety was ensured. Interacting with people of Uttar Pradesh origin in Mumbai, the Chief Minister said that under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, today’s Uttar Pradesh is full of self-confidence and is moving towards becoming self-reliant.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who reached the country’s financial capital Mumbai, he started his two-day tour with a dialogue with the people of Uttar Pradesh. Seeing the Chief Minister in front, the Chief Minister told the expatriates who were full of enthusiasm that you all have been witness to the changes in Uttar Pradesh in the last 05-06 years. Uttar Pradesh, which was facing identity crisis five years ago, is telling a new story of development. The people of Azamgarh did not even get Dharamshala in this Mumbai, today an airport and a university are being built in the same Azamgarh. The Chief Minister said that now the youth of Uttar Pradesh is not compelled to hide his identity, he says with pride that he is from Uttar Pradesh.
Sharing the efforts of Uttar Pradesh for change, Chief Minister Yogi said that before 2017, daughters were not safe in the state, poor and businessmen were surrounded by the crisis of insecurity. With the formation of the government, we first focused on two subjects. Firstly ensured the safety of daughters and decided that no illegal activity will be conducted in the state. And then, be it illegal slaughter houses or illegal encroachment on the land of the poor, all were closed. We formed an anti land mafia task force, illegally occupied land was freed, today many development projects are going on there. CM said that when we worked for the safety of daughters, some people raised questions on our thinking, but when the time of elections came, these safe mothers, sisters and daughters expressed their faith in the policies of Prime Minister Modi.
More than 0.5 million jobs, not a single question
Referring to the success of connecting more than five lakh youth with government jobs in five and a half years, the Chief Minister said that we have stopped unnecessary interference in the selection commissions. Gave them autonomy but also fixed accountability and the result was that more than five lakh youths got government jobs but even one appointment was not questioned. Every recruitment was done with transparency and accuracy. This increased the faith of the youth on the government. This is the reason that after 37 years a government was elected for the second time in a row with a two-thirds majority.
The Chief Minister shared the story of change with the migrant people
Referring to better law and order and policy reforms for investment, the Chief Minister said that there was a time when there used to be riots every second-third day in Uttar Pradesh, today more than 05 years have passed, there was no riot anywhere. There has been a massive change in the image of the state due to better law and order situation. Similarly, under policy reforms, the government has implemented 25 new industrial sectoral policies. The Chief Minister said that the Uttar Pradesh government in our state has developed infrastructure to ensure seamless connectivity through air, water, road and rail networks. The state has the country’s largest railway network and the junction of the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor and the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor is in Greater Noida. With the development of existing international airports at Lucknow, Varanasi and Kushinagar and new airports at Jewar and Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh is going to become the only state in the country with 05 international airports. The International Airport at Jewar is going to be the biggest International Airport in India. Not only this, 09 airports have also been made operational under the Regional Connectivity Scheme for domestic connectivity of airways and work is going on at 10 other airports.
Sharing his experience, the Chief Minister said that before 2017 there was only one flight from Gorakhpur to Delhi. Today there are 14 flights. Today airports are also being built in Shravasti, Saharanpur, Aligarh, Azamgarh. The country’s first inland water way connecting Varanasi to Haldia port has become operational. Now there is a plan to connect it with Prayagraj as well. The Chief Minister said that understanding the limitations of the landlocked state, we have worked with a different policy. To facilitate the movement of goods, our government is promoting the development of dry-ports and in terms of road connectivity, the state has emerged as a role model for other states. He said that the single window system of UP has been appreciated at the national level where more than 350 NOCs are being obtained very easily. Not only this, recently we have also developed the Nivesh Sarathi portal for monitoring the MoUs of industrial investment and giving timely incentives to the investors. In this special program of dialogue with the expatriates, the Chief Minister also invited suggestions from everyone for the betterment of the state.
