On Tuesday, as UP CM Yogi Adityanath’s government completed a 100th day in power of Uttar Pradesh, Adityanath unveiled a booklet highlighting his government’s achievements. Not only did he praise his government but he also used the occasion to slam the previous party in power on the ground of the lack of development.
Releasing at a press conference the booklet “100 din vishwas ke” on his government’s performance since he assumed office on March 19, he said, “We want to assure people that government has started initiatives to take UP forward on the path of development.”
Taking a jibe at the political rivals, Adityanath said that Uttar Pradesh lacked on the development front due to corruption and nepotism in past years. He said 2017 will be observed as ‘Garib Kalyan Varsh’ — a year for the welfare of the poor. Noting that the state’s economy was agriculture-based, he said his government was, therefore, giving priority to issues related to farmers. He also emphasised on the major decisions taken by the state cabinet on farm loan waiver and on toning up law and order.
Praising the efforts made by his government, the UP CM said cane dues of over Rs 22,517 crore were paid to sugarcane growers in the state after his government came to power. Barely taking any media questions, Adityanath sought the cooperation of the media in helping him run his government.
