New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was in Aligarh on Tuesday, praised the level of development and the efforts being taken by the Yogi Adityanath government in the state. The prime minister was in Aligarh to lay the foundation stone of Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh State University, ahead of the UP Assembly Polls.
Hailing the double-engine government in the state, he said, “Today UP has become an example of a state reaping double benefits of the double-engine government.”
Hitting out at the former government led by SP and BSP, he said, “The people of UP cannot forget what kind of scams used to happen here, how the governance was handed over to the corrupt.”
“There was a time when the administration here was run by goons and mafia arbitrarily. But now the extortionists, those running the mafia raj are behind bars,” the prime minister said.
The prime minister said the UP which was seen as a hindrance in the development of the country, is now leading the country’s big campaigns.
“Uttar Pradesh is becoming a very attractive place for every small and big investor of the country and the world. This happens when the necessary environment for investment is created, necessary facilities are available,” he said.
“Today Uttar Pradesh is discussed for big infrastructure projects and big decisions,” he said.
