BJP to return to power in 2022 in Uttar Pradesh: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that with the rate at which the state is progressing, it will reach 1 trillion USD economy by 2030. However, if they accelerate, they could achieve it by 2024.

BJP will return to power in Uttar Pradesh in 2022, said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in an interview with Dainik Jagran. Stating his government’s achievements in last two-and-a-half years, he said that earlier, Ayodhya had a barren Deepotsav, his government has revived it while the Kumbh has been a huge success story for his government. He also said that with the rate at which the state is progressing, it will reach 1 trillion USD economy by 2030. However, if they accelerate, they could achieve it by 2024.

When asked whether he gets angry, he said that he does not get angry. “When you have to achieve big goals, you have to be patient. You should be committed to take up challenges. I am never disappointed. I always learn something from every incident. I am a Yogi during stressful situations. I practice Yoga regularly and hence despite sleeping for only 3.5-4 hours every day I am fresh all day long,” he said.

Development in Uttar Pradesh

Speaking to Dainik Jagran, he said that currently the growth rate is at around 8% and his government’s aim is to get investment of Rs 40 lakh crore in next four years. Currently, the per capita income of an individual in UP is Rs 64,000 while the national average is Rs 1,20,000. If UP achieves 1 trillion dollar economy by 2024, the per capital income could double.

To achieve this, the UP government will focus on agriculture, cooperative farming as well as development of industries. Focus will also be on improving law and order situation in the state, he said. To improve manpower utilisation, the state government will also work on education and heath sectors.

Upcoming polls

Speaking on the upcoming bypolls in Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath said that while the elections till 2014 were fought on religious and caste lines, things have changed since then. Prime Minister Modi has shown that elections can be fought and won on issues of development, women empowerment and industrialisation. “When Opposition brought in communal poison, we answered them back,” he said.

Speaking on the state assembly elections which will be held in UP in 2022, Yogi Adityanath said that he is confident that the BJP will return to power. “There should be no difference between the state and centre. Our aim is to implement all central schemes in the state,” he said. “In next two-and-a-half years, UP will have a different picture. We have controlled the epidemic outbreaks on diseases like encephalitis, dengue and are even working towards improving the employment and health of the youth,” he added.

Ties with Russia

Adding how Uttar Pradesh can help far-east Russia in terms of farming, he said that the state will help Russia with contract farming. They have over 50 lakh hectares land where no agriculture takes place. UP will help with technology and manpower and help develop integrated development in agriculture in Russia. An MoU in this regard was signed between UP government and Russia in August this year.
