Development, heritage focus areas of PM Modi: Yogi

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday said development and heritage are two focus areas of Prime Minister Narendra Modi while pointing out that under the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government, the country has witnessed for the first time that development works are inseparably aligned with people’s aspirations.

Addressing the media, the CM said, “Unprecedented work has been done both in terms of development and heritage under PM Modi’s leadership. “Infrastructure is one area which gets maximum support of people and the government’s achievements are significant in this regard. The number of highways has doubled.”

He said, “Similarly, since 2014, the number of airports has increased from 74 to more than 150. During the Congress regime, there was only one AIIMS, which increased to six under Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s prime ministership and further expanded to 22 during PM Modi’s tenure.”

Yogi said that for the first time in the country, respect for heritage has also been observed, citing the restoration of the Vishwanath Dham in Kashi, the grandeur of Mahakaal, Kedarnath, Badrinath, and Somnath temples and the consecration ceremony of Lord Ram Lalla in Ayodhya after a gap of five centuries as glaring examples of this.

He said, “Previously, accommodating 50 people simultaneously at the Kashi Vishwanath Temple was challenging. Now, even if 50,000 visitors arrive, there are no issues. Similarly, hosting 500 individuals in Ayodhya posed difficulties in the past, but today, even accommodating 5 lakh people presents no trouble.”

The CM said that the harmony between ‘Vikas’ (development) and ‘Virasat’ (heritage) witnessed in the country today is courtesy the vision and determination of PM Modi’s leadership.

He expressed confidence that this support will turn into blessings allowing the NDA to form a majority government once again under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
