Yogi Adityanath visited Hathras on Monday and laid foundation stones to 34 development schemes worth Rs. 155 crores, making his visit to the 75th district of the state. He had also visited Etah on Sunday where he oversaw the development works and laid foundation stones for development works worth Rs.253 crores.
Yogi Adityanath after assuming charge as the Chief Minister made his intentions to visit every corner of the state. He had announced that his priority is to visit every district in the state to speed up the development process. He had ensured that the schemes launched by both central and state governments will reach every person in the state.
The spokesperson of BJP Manish Shukla said, “It is not that he has just touched all the district, he also had night stays in some of them and there are some places where he has made frequent visits in keeping with their importance.”
The chief minister has travelled the state extensively and has visited certain districts more than once. He has visited his hometown Gorakhpur and the parliamentary constituency of Prime Minister Modi, Varanasi more than three times. The Prime Minister has also lauded the efforts of the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister for his outreach programme and other commendable works across the state.
Yogi Adityanath addressed the media, accused the predecessors of neglecting the developmental activities in the state. He also targeted previous governments for deteriorating law and order situation in the state. He said that the ‘goonda raj’ had deterred the investors from investing in the state.
Recently, Yogi Adityanath had broken the myth of ‘Noida Jinx’ by visiting Noida. This superstition started in 1988 when former chief minister Vir Bahadur Singh lost the power soon after visiting Noida. It is believed that any chief minister visiting Noida will lose his/her power. Yogi Adityanath, despite this myth, visited Noida in December to inaugurate metro projects and other developmental works.
The Chief Minister has prioritized the efforts to improve law and order in the state, which was deteriorated during the previous governments. He has also attracted investments of Rs.60,000 crore after swearing as Chief Minister of the state. Recently, Samsung has opened the world’s largest mobile factory in Uttar Pradesh, which provides jobs to more than 70,000 people in the state.
