Sitapur (UP): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday said that Naimisharanya will soon undergo a face-lift on the lines of Kashi, Ayodhya, and Mathura-Vrindavan which will boost religious tourism and lead to numerous employment opportunities in every sector.
While comparing the urban local body polls in UP with Devasur Sangram during a public meeting in support of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidates in Naimisharanya, Yogi said, “From this land of Naimisharanya, Maharishi Dadhichi once donated his bones to make the weapons for the victory of the divine forces. Now is the perfect opportunity to use this election to teach the demonic corrupt, miscreants, mafia, and criminals a lesson.”
Maintaining that Naimisharanya’s history dates back thousands of years, he said that this place has always served as the center of faith for all of us because it contains the complete wisdom of Indian sages.
The CM said, “Basic facilities will start to reach every home as soon as the third engine joins forces with the double engine government. The benefits of the government’s schemes will be available to everyone without discrimination, bypassing the corrupt, miscreants, mafia, and those with criminal tendencies.”
Pointing out that the picture of the country has changed in the last 9 years, he said that 9 years ago people looked at India with suspicion. “India’s citizens are now respected on a global level because of the way things have changed. When there is a crisis anywhere in the world, everyone looks up to India. India has been successful in evacuating its citizens stranded in Sudan following the crisis. Hundreds of people from UP have also been brought back safely,” he said.
Yogi said that the work that was not done after independence, has been done in the last 9 years. “The poor are getting the benefit of housing, toilets, Ayushman Yojana, free ration facilities and free Covid vaccines. While on the one hand, government programmes for the poor are being implemented without discrimination, on the other hand, highways, and expressways, airports, IITs, and AIIMS are being built and cows and heritage are being respected,” he said.
He said that the government has started the work of rejuvenating Naimisharanya. “Very soon, electric buses will begin operating in this area. Not only this, helicopter service is going to start here in the next few months. Roads will be widened. If Naimisharanya is rejuvenated, lakhs of crores of tourists will come here, generating employment in every sector,” he said.
The CM said that under One District One Product (ODOP) scheme carpet from this area is exported to other nations. “These rugs are in high demand in the US and Europe. There are nine municipal bodies in Sitapur district,” he said.
He urged the people to support Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in order to provide the country a system free from crime and corruption, that will transform cities into smart cities instead of garbage dumps.
