Azamgarh, December 14 (HS): On Thursday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath arrived in Azamgarh and flagged off the Vikas Bharat Sankalp Yatra van. During his speech, CM Yogi Adityanath noted that there was a time when Azamgarh’s name alone sent shivers around the world, and he aspired for the resounding slogan to reach Delhi. He made this statement during his address, even as the response from the people to his slogan was lukewarm. He emphasized that no one had anticipated such rapid development in the country over the next decade and expressed his belief that today, India is held in high esteem globally.
Regarding the Bharat Sankalp Yatra, he explained that the Vikas Bharat Yatra aims to bring the benefits of government initiatives to those who have not had access to them previously. For this purpose, 536 video vans are operational, providing information to those who have been unable to benefit from the schemes and guiding them on how to do so. He emphasized that nobody had imagined the construction of homes for four crore people, with 55 lakh residences currently being built in Uttar Pradesh alone. Ayushman cards have been distributed to 50 crore individuals across the country, with UP alone serving 10 crore beneficiaries. Additionally, a scheme provides free rations to 80 crore people, benefiting millions in the state.
The CM pointed out that residents of the state would receive free rations for the next five years. Various development projects are underway in Azamgarh that were previously unimaginable. The Maharaja Suheldev State University, set to open in January 2024, is under construction in Azamgarh. The establishment of a music college and an airport in Azamgarh were unexpected achievements attributed to the government’s efforts. CM Yogi Adityanath stressed the importance of ensuring that all schemes benefit the underprivileged castes. He expressed a vision of Azamgarh resonating with positive waves instead of terror. Concluding his speech, he mentioned Prime Minister Modi’s commitment to transforming India into a developed nation by 2047.
