Vaccine development was underway, and work was being done to create a National Education Policy. Alongside that, several poverty alleviation programs were being implemented. Providing nutrition allowances to laborers, ensuring access to ration facilities for the poor, providing free gas cylinders to beneficiaries of the Ujjwala scheme, and directly transferring money to the accounts of the Jan Dhan account holders have been done.”
He added that for the past three and a half years during the corona pandemic, the government has been providing the benefit of free rations to its 80 crore people while Pakistan is struggling to have even a single meal.
Yogi Adityanath said that two major achievements were associated with India when India was celebrating the Amrit Mahotsav of its independence and entered the first year of the Amrit period of independence. One being India becoming the fifth largest economy in the world by overtaking Britain who ruled India for 200 years. At the same time, India is also presiding over other G-20 countries under the leadership of the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi.
The chief minister said, “Within 9 years, roofs have been provided to 3 crore 50 lakh people. In Uttar Pradesh alone, 54 lakh poor people have been given housing. In the country, 12 crore people have been provided free toilets, and in Uttar Pradesh, 2 crore 61 lakh people have benefited from toilets. Today, every poor person has access to health insurance, farmers have the Farmers’ Honor Fund, and free vaccines have been provided only by India.
He called upon the people to join together with the mission of a prosperous India and a better India, and establish India as the world’s third-largest economy by 2027. Therefore, it is necessary to bring back the government of the Bharatiya Janata Party, led by Prime Minister Modi, once again in 2024.
