PM praises UP government for pace of development India News


LUCK: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday praised the Uttar Pradesh government and Prime Minister Yogi Adityanath for the pace of development despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
Speaking at the stone laying of rural drinking water supply projects in Mirzapur and Sonbhadra districts of Uttar Pradesh via video conference, Prime Minister Modi said the projects are an example of Uttar Pradesh moving rapidly on the path of the development despite Covid-19.
“Compared to the perception of Uttar Pradesh among the people before and the predictions made, the way the projects are implemented one after another, the image of the UP government and its officials is changing,” Prime Minister Modi said.
He added that the way in which the UP government dealt with the coronavirus crisis, cared for migrant workers and gave them jobs, is not “something common.” “Working in such a great state with minute details (baariki) on all fronts, UP has done ‘kamaal’ (wonders),” said Prime Minister Modi.
The Prime Minister praised Yogi Adityanath’s efforts to reduce cases of encephalitis. He said the Yogi government’s success in containing him is being discussed far and wide.
For saving the lives of innocent children, each and every UP citizen is blessing the entire Yogi Aditynath team, Prime Minister Modi said.
The Prime Minister also recalled Sonelal Patel, the founder of Apna Dal and father of Anupriya Patel, the deputy Lok Sabha from Mirzapur.
Anupriya’s party, Apna Dal (Sonelal) is a partner of the BJP alliance in UP. “Today, when I talk to people in this area, it is very natural that I remember my old friend Sonelal Patel. He was very concerned about the water shortage in this area. Seeing the beginning of these schemes, his soul today will feel satisfied and also pour his blessings on us, “said Prime Minister Modi.
