Those opposed to development find my tours ‘unupyogi’: Uttar Pradesh CM | India News – Times of India

LUCKNOW: In a sharp attack on the Opposition after PM Narendra Modi endorsed him as ‘UPYogi’, CM Yogi Adityanath said that those who did not like development would find his touring of the state ‘unupyogi’ or useless, those who liked riots would find the government action against the mafia and criminals ‘unupyogi’ and those who used poor as a vote bank would find the state’s ease of living rankings ‘unupyogi’.
Speaking at The Times of India Destination Uttar Pradesh Conclave on Monday, the CM said by the time his “friends in the Opposition” would wake up, he would have already toured several districts.
“There are people who think my touring is unupyogi but the people of UP have already made them unupyogi. Our government is working with three targets: nationalism, good governance and development. We are not among those who practise our religion within our homes or put tika but wipe it off when we come outside. If we don’t have hesitation in saying Bharat Mata Ki Jai at home, then we do not hesitate in saying it in public either,” the CM said. He added that by connecting good governance with nationalism, his government had focused on providing better security, stopping corruption completely and improving ease of living and ease of doing business.
“UP was believed to be a hurdle in the progress of the country. In the past five years, UP has proved it is not a hurdle but ahead of all others in leading India on the path of development,” he said.
Referring to previous governments, Yogi said that for them, development was limited to self or family and if extended to anyone, it would only include people of their caste. His government, on the other hand, had recognised UP as a large family and implemented a sustainable model of development, he said.
The state, he added, was being developed under 734 urban local bodies. The Centre had identified 10 smart cities while the UP government had added another seven to the list. We are improving basic facilities and now, in 50 parameters in ease of living, UP is first, he said.
