After 30 months in office, says Yogi Adityanath, he has withdrawn from the identity crisis
LUCKNOW: On the occasion of ending his thirty-month term of office, the Prime Minister published a pamphlet on his government's achievements on Thursday, claiming that the perception of the state had changed significantly during that period.
At a press conference at his residence, the Prime Minister said the state had prepared a report on the implementation of several key programs, including the insurance policies of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Saubhagya Yojana, Kisan, the construction of toilets and the provision of health insurance.
On March 19, 2017, the BJP government was formed after a 14-year exile in the state. Over the past two and a half years, UP has been pulled out of an identity crisis as we turned challenges into opportunities. Said Adityanath.
He said earlier that the state was very poor and forced to commit suicide. We have provided farmers with a range of programs. Crop credits of up to Rs 1 lakh granted to 86 lakh farmers in the state were waived and a record purchase of crops was made.
Adityanath also highlighted the success of Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas in Varanasi in Allahabad and the improvement of the state of law and order in the state.
There has not been a single uproar in the state in the last two and a half years. The dreaded criminals have either fled the state or been in jail. There was a sharp decline in deception, rape, extortion, cases of loot and turmoil. Up to 41 new police stations were opened in the state, he said.
In addition, according to the brochure Vikas Evam Sushashan Ke 30 Mah (30 months of good governance and development), the state has made huge investments in the industrial sector and creating job opportunities for young people.
For the occasion, a movie titled UP Ke Karmayogi was also played. Sanyasi ke karmayoga se damak raha UP ka bhaal (Because of the work of a saint, UP seems), the video states that 2.5 years of Yogi government are better than the last 65 years.
Adityanath said that over the past two and a half years, 50 lakh children have been enrolled in state primary schools.
Another major achievement of his government was a significant decrease in deaths from fatal encephalitis.
The BJP, who had risen to power in parliamentary elections by a massive majority, kept control of the electorate by winning 64 out of 80 Lok Sabha Seats in UP earlier this year.
