'UP additional Yogi, bahut up-yogi': PM Modi lauds Adityanath in poll-bound state, lays foundation of Ganga Expressway


Upon completion, the 594-km long six-lane expressway will become the longest in Uttar Pradesh, connecting the western and eastern regions of the state

Laying the foundation stone of the Rs 36,230 crore Ganga Expressway project in Shahjahanpur on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for "eliminating" mafia and taking up development work.

Praising the Yogi Adityanath government for handling of law and order, Modi came up with a new formulation U.P.Y.O.G.I — UP plus Yogi.

"UP plus Yogi bahut hai upyogi" (Uttar Pradesh plus Yogi have great utility), he said, expanding U.P.Y.O.G.I.

Modi said poor law and order triggered exodus of people from Uttar Pradesh earlier, but during the past four-and-a-half years bulldozers have razed unauthorised properties of mafias, causing pain to those patronising them.

The 594-kilometre expressway — one of the longest in the country — will open new doors for Uttar Pradesh’s development, Modi said.

Addressing the gathering at Shahjahanpur, the prime minister said, "Ganga Expressway will open doors of development for Uttar Pradesh. It will generate opportunity for thousands as industry will come and employment will be generated."

Modi said that the expressway will improve connectivity, convenience and boost economic development and tourism in UP.

"The focus of the double engine government is the development of UP. With the mantra of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas, we are making sincere efforts for the development of UP," he added.

The expressway, built at a cost of over Rs 36,200 crore, will start near the Bijauli village in Meerut, and extend till near the Judapur Dandu village in Prayagraj.

It passes through Meerut, Hapur, Bulandshahr, Amroha, Sambhal, Budaun, Shahjahanpur, Hardoi, Unnao, Rae Bareli, Pratapgarh and Prayagraj districts of the state.

A  3.5 km-long air strip for assisting emergency take off and landing of Indian Air Force planes will also be constructed on the expressway in Shahjahanpur. An industrial corridor is also proposed to be built along the expressway.

PM praised modern infrastructure being developed in UP

He said, "The modern infrastructure coming up in UP today shows how resources are utilised. You have seen how public's money was used earlier. But today, UP's money is being used for UP's development. Earlier, big projects were started on paper so that they can fill their own coffers."

Modi further said that the expressway is set to bring numerous jobs and several new opportunities for the youth.

"Your time will now be saved from these expressways, UP is receiving development from all sides. These new expressways and airports will bring many opportunities for UP," he added.


"This is what is laying the network of expressways in UP today. The new airports that are being built, new railway routes are being built, that is bringing together many boons for the people of UP," he said.

Modi also praised the Yogi Adityanath government for generating free electricity. He said, "You remember the condition of five years ago. Except in some areas of the state, electricity was not available in other cities and villages. The government has not only given about 80 lakh free electricity connections in UP, but every district is being given many times more electricity than before."

He also said the state government aims to spend Rs 2 lakh crores for developing pakka houses.

"Yogi ji and his team have opened dozens of Medical Colleges in UP for the benefits of the people. This is called 'Damdaar Kaam, Imaandar Kaam' (solid work, honest work).

Modi's statements seems to come in tandem with the upcoming crucial Assembly elections to be held in the state in 2022.

BJP fulfilled all promises in UP: Yogi Adityanath

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath during the event said, "we have fulfilled all the promises made to the people in UP."

"Every Indian in this country who saw the inauguration program of Kashi Vishwanath Dham feels proud. In this country before 2014, promises were made but never fulfilled. Today, things have changed we have fulfilled all the promises made to the people in UP," said Adiytanath.

The CM further went on to say that, "After 2014, the governmet started uniting people in the country. All those issues which were never taken care of by the previous governments were given utmost priority. The country's farmers, villagers, youth, workers and women were given their due respect under the Modi government."
