Lucknow, Sep 19 ( TVN) BJP government of Uttar Pradesh completed four and half years under the leadership of chief minister Yogi Adityanath who asserted that his government reinforced the rule of law in the state, provided good governance  and delivered and that too in the most transparent manner.

While elaborating his achievements Yogi Adityanath told news persons in a jam packed press conference organised on the occasion that 

- UP emerged as an ideal model of good governance in four and a half years.

- the state which used to be the sixth largest economy of the country was now at number two.

- UP which languished at 14th position in Ease of Doing Business in 2016 took a quantum jump to reach second position.

- the state is on the top in the country in implementation of 44 welfare schemes.

-  the investment of over Rs three lakh crore after first ever investment summit in 2018 was a major achievement.

- 42 lakh houses for the poor under PM Awas Yojana. 

 - the property of mafias, acquired through unscrupulous manner, worth over Rs 1800 crore was either  seized or demolished.

 - the state reached the position where the exports are at 1.61 lakh crore making Uttar Pradesh as the export hub.

- One District One Product (ODOP), promoting the traditional crafts and craftsmen, has been a grand success under the scheme.

Based on his achievements, Yogi Adityanath enthused confidence that the BJP will come to the power again with over 350 assembly seats in 2022.

  He said that his government delivered on all the promises made before coming to power in 2017 catering to all the sections including youth, women, farmers, poor without any discrimination on caste or religion basis.

  He said every individual of the state was happy as his government evolved a transparent development model, based on which party was confident of returning to power with more than 350 seats.

    Brushing aside the opposition for unleashing a misinformation campaign, CM Yogi minced no words while stating his government had inherited a state which was mired in corruption in recruitment process, appeasement of certain sections was the mainstay of governance and the poor and deprived section was denied benefits of the welfare schemes. 

 His government changed the perception about Uttar Pradesh in the country which we managed to do with precision as the state was considered as an obstacle in the overall progress of the Nation, he claimed.
Yogi Aadityanath said that it was a matter of pride that Uttar Pradesh had now emerged as the leader on many counts, so much so that the state of Uttar Pradesh secured the top position in the country in implementation of 44 government schemes.

    The Chief Minister, while listing achievements of his government, was livid how the state was consigned to communalism and appeasement preventing the most eligible lot of the society getting benefits of the welfare schemes. The habitual criminals and mafia were directly under government patronage during the previous regime and the period between 2012 and 2017 witnessed riots every three-four days, he pointed out further stating that no single riot during the last four and a half years took place, the criminals were shown their place and the property of mafias, acquired through unscrupulous manner, worth over Rs 1800 crore was either seized or demolished.

He said during the previous governments, there used to be a scramble for making their personal houses but his government delivered for the people and provided as many as 42 lakh houses for the poor under PM Awas Yojana. 

 With a conducive environment created by the government in terms of controlled law and order, transparent processes  and prompt decision-making, it came as no surprise that even the companies from China relocated their businesses in Uttar Pradesh, added Yogi.

He further said that the MSME sector which was lying in the dumps during the previous government has become growth engine of the economy with the flagship scheme One District One Product (ODOP), promoting the traditional crafts and craftsmen, has been a grand success.

     The Chief Minister said that the Covid management of his government proved to be a torchbearer for many states with health infrastructure having been created during the most trying times. 

     He said that the hallmark of his government was the underlying mantra of transparency in governance and ensuring benefits of the welfare schemes to all without discrimination. 

     Taking a jibe at the opposition again, the CM said  they used to mock us on Ayodhya Ram temple construction date. Now they are silent as the construction of the grand temple at Ayodhya has taken off, adding the Deepotsav at Ayodhya, Dev Deepawali at Kashi and Rangostav at Barsana , Mathura have become the symbol of our ancient culture and faith.
