Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath reached Mumbai on Wednesday for a roadshow. He recently met governor Koshyari and visited the Raj Bhavan. The CM is here to attract investments in the state ahead of the Global Investors Summit in Lucknow in February.
In his speech in Mumbai, Yogi addressed UP-settled people in Mumbai. “You all have been witness to the changes that have taken place in Uttar Pradesh in the last five to six years. Uttar Pradesh, which was facing an identity crisis five years ago, is telling a new story of development today… Youths of Uttar Pradesh no more hide their identity and say with pride that ‘I am from Uttar Pradesh,” he said.
“The people of Azamgarh did not even get Dharamshala in Mumbai to stay, but today an airport and a university are being built in the same Azamgarh,” he said.
He further addressed the previous government’s ignorance of women’s safety in the state. He claimed Adityanath said his government has improved the law and order situation in the state. “There was a fear of the girls being abducted. Boys pursued education while staying in faraway hostels. The scenario has changed considerably. Women are feeling safe and secure now,” he added.
Furthermore, he talked about Covid-19 and its implementation. The government implemented all the flagship schemes of the Central government without any bias. “During the Covid-19 pandemic, 40 lakh migrants settled in various parts of the country went back to their native places. But no one left UP during the pandemic. At the same time, we took care of migrants who returned. We don’t run away from challenges. We face them head-on,” he added.
