Amit Shah praises Yogi Adityanath-led UP govt for restoring law and order, finishing long pending development works | Lucknow News – Times of India


LUCKNOW: Dispelling any doubts that all might not be well between BJP’s top leadership and Yogi Adityanath, Union home minister Amit Shah on Monday heaped praises on the UP chief minister for restoring law and order in the state and for completing long pending development projects.
Speaking at the Central Zonal Council meeting in Bhopal, a meeting which the CM was forced to attend virtually from Lucknow, since he was unable to fly there due to inclement weather, Shah also lauded the CM for having successfully depoliticised government machinery.
Shah said that not only did UP complete various long pending irrigation projects, but he (CM Yogi) also expanded their capacities and launched new projects. He appreciated the work done by the Yogi government in improving infrastructure by building roads, bridges and culverts and added that significant progress had been made in the defence corridor, one of only two being developed in India at present.
Shah also praised the CMs of Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Chhattisgarh, part of the erstwhile BIMARU states – known as such due to lack of development there.
He said that it was a matter of pride that these four states had managed to shed that tag and congratulated them on behalf of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“It is commendable that you have realised the PM’s concept of Team India in your respective states. Now, CMs of all states must give priority to cases of crime against women and children. There should be continuous review of the situation at the level of chief secretary in this regard,” he said.
The meeting saw all, except three, issues getting resolved.
The next meeting of the Council will be held in Rishikesh where each state will be required to make a 10-minute-long presentation of three successful projects.
In its last meeting, the Council had resolved 26 out of 30 issues.
Meanwhile, the CM, too, praised the home minister for having led the country to its best situation regarding internal security. The regional council meetings, he said, were a clear manifestation of the PM’s vision of Team India but an even bigger example of cooperative federalism was seen in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic. “The efforts made to save the country’s 135 crore population from the global pandemic have been highly commendable and have been appreciated by the whole world,” he said.
Speaking about the works taken up by his government in UP over the past five years, the CM said that his first task was to create an environment of security in the state which would then enable him to restore faith in the state and bring development back on track. “In line with PM Modi’s resolve to make the country a five trillion-dollar economy, we have started the process of making UP a trillion-dollar economy and we believe we will be successful in our venture. We are also implementing projects and schemes to carry our spiritual and cultural heritage forward,” he said.
The CM also touched upon his government’s flagship scheme of ‘one district-one product’ which the Centre had asked other states to emulate. He said that the scheme was based on the idea of a self-reliant India and the government had decided to push local products through the GeM portal. He also spoke about the effective prevention of lumpy disease related to cattle, cow smuggling and the use of drugs which were ruining the younger generation.
