“UP plus Yogi bahut hai upyogi (UP with Yogi has high utility),” he remarked at a gathering in the state’s Shahjahanpur region after laying the foundation stone for the 594-kilometer Ganga Expressway. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is seeking a second term in power in Uttar Pradesh, has already named Adityanath as its candidate in the state’s forthcoming assembly elections.
PM Modi stated the state’s terrible law and order situation drove many to flee the state, and he also discussed the mafia’s unregistered properties and how the administration under Adityanath has brought about improvements that have benefited the state.
PM Modi also highlighted the advantages of a two-engine administration. According to him, nearly 30 lakh impoverished individuals in Uttar Pradesh have received pucca dwellings, and the programme would continue to cover all remaining eligible recipients.

The government’s objective, according to the Prime Minister, is to empower those who are behind in society or are backward, and to ensure that the advantages of progress reach them. “This sentiment is reflected in our agriculture policy and policies affecting farmers,” he added. Uttar Pradesh, according to Modi, is one of the leading states in terms of providing a minimum support price (MSP) for sugarcane and making payments to farmers.
