100 days on, has Uttar Pradesh fared well under Yogi Adityanath?


Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is addressed a press conference in Lucknow after his government completed 100 days in office on Monday.

Mr. Adityanath has proved himself to be a tough taskmaster, holding back-to-back meetings with ministers and bureaucrats well past midnight, only to return to office before 9.30 a.m. the next day.

The Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said on Monday that his government won't allow illegal capturing of government and individual's land in UP. "And at this point of time, I am experiencing satisfaction". In a jibe at his political rivals, the chief minister said Uttar Pradesh lacked on the development front due to corruption and nepotism in past years.

In the letter, Pooja Shukla one of the jailed student, said, "Our protest was democratic.If the Government thinks that by extending our incarceration term, they can break our resolve, then they are wrong. It is resorting to such tactics to smokescreen its failures.It smacks of politics of vendetta", SP chief spokesperson Rajendra Chowdhury told PTI. He said the state was under the grip of "an undeclared Emergency" ever since BJP came to power. He also highlighted the major decisions taken by the state cabinet on farm loan waiver and on toning up law and order.

Though it was a press conference, but the Chief Minister only took a single question of the scribe, when it was asked what the government was doing to protect the interest of small and medium newspapers.

The CM also said the UP government is following PM's call of 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas (development for all, together with all)' in letter and spirit.

He said welfare of the farmers was a top priority for the state government and a lot of things were being done in this direction.

He added that the recent loan waivers to farmers would not affect development work but had instead benefitted 86 lakh farmers.
