Investors from India and abroad keen to invest in U.P.: CM Yogi
All MPs and MLAs should hold dialogues and maintain regular contact with entrepreneurs, businessmen and migrants of their areas, Yogi Adityanath said
Chief minister Yogi Adityanath has said at present Uttar Pradesh is recognised as the best destination for investors from India and abroad. “Investors from across the country and the world are excited to invest in Uttar Pradesh. This change is going to pave way for golden future of our state and our youth,” he added.
The CM expressed these views as he reviewed development projects being implemented in Agra, Saharanpur, Azamgarh, Jhansi and Moradabad divisions with local MPs and MLAs in the state capital on Tuesday.
“Some districts have received investment proposal worth thousands of crores by organising district investors’ summits. Similar efforts should be made in all the districts. People’s representatives should lead the district investors’ summits. All the MPs and MLAs should hold dialogues and maintain regular contact with entrepreneurs, businessmen and migrants of their areas and inform them about the industrial policies and investment policies of the state government,” he said.
“The entrepreneurs should be apprised of the potential of the district to encourage them to invest. With the cooperation of public representatives, the investors’ summit will touch new heights,” Yogi added.
“Members of Parliament and MLAs should give wide publicity to the new industrial policies of the state government with the cooperation of district administration, industrial development department, Invest UP and the chief minister’s office. Discussion should be organised among the youth enrolled in local universities, colleges, polytechnics and ITIs. People’s representatives should participate in these programmes,” he added.
“The MPs and MLAs should regularly inspect the development projects being run in their areas. The people’s representatives should ensure quality of the work as well as its completion on schedule. The launch of development projects will be helpful in building the image of the local public representatives,” he said.
The CM further said, “Social media has emerged as the most effective medium of communication in this age of technological revolution. All MPs and MLAs should use this platform. Public welfare schemes, industrial policies, and employment-oriented programmes of the central and state governments should be highlighted on the social media platform. This platform is very useful for contacting and holding dialogue with the public.”
“Under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, religious and cultural cities, including Ayodhya, Kashi and Mathura are gaining prestige on the global stage with the restoration of their ancient glory. In view of the public sentiments, the state government has constituted the Braj Teerth Vikas Parishad for the overall development of Mathura-Vrindavan. The development of the Braj region is our priority,” Yogi added.
“The plan for strengthening 84 Kosi Parikrama Marg in Braj region should be completed with full promptness in a time-bound manner. People’s representatives should also make efforts for better connectivity in the villages connected with the Parikrama Marg,” he said.
“The PM has given us the mantra of ‘Reform, Perform and Transform’ for overall development. Incorporating this mantra into our action plan, Uttar Pradesh has brought about a significant improvement in the state’s economy over the last five-and-a-half years,” the CM said.
The public representatives apprised the CM about the sentiments of local public. The CM directed the officers to take immediate decision on the matters raised by the public representatives.
“Uttar Pradesh Global Investors’ Summit will be held from February 10 to12. ‘Team UP’, which went to invite investors from the various countries, has received investment proposals of more than ₹12 lakh crore. The Global Investors’ Summit will be historic. It will help the state achieve its goal of becoming a $1 trillion economy by 2027,” the CM said.
Chief minister Yogi Adityanath has said more than 9 lakh cattle have been protected in the cow shelters operating in the state. “The scheme of giving ₹900 per month to the farmers interested in cattle rearing is also getting good results. The MPs and MLAs should take interest in such schemes to connect the general public with it,” he said.
“The capacity of cow shelters is also being increased for better protection of stray cattle. The state government is setting large cattle shelters at development block level. MP and MLAs should cooperate for the availability of land for this project,” Yogi said.
The chief minister said, “Respecting public sentiment, Chhatrapati Shivaji Memorial should be established in Agra. MPs and MLAs should prepare a better action plan in this regard by coordinating with the culture department and the district administration. Every possible cooperation will be extended by the state government.”
The CM said safeguarding farmers’ interests was the top priority of the government. The electricity connection of the farmers wil not be disconnected due to non-payment of bills. “Clear orders have been issued by the power corporation in this regard. Power disconnection has been reported from some areas. This is not acceptable. The chief minister’s office has taken cognizance of the power disconnection and strict action will be taken against the guilty,” he said.
“The government has a clear intention that there should be a proper solution to the complaints coming on thana and tehsil Diwas. People’s representatives should inspect arrangements and disposal of public grievances. It should be ensured that the complaints coming here are resolved within the schedule. The thana and tehsil Diwas is being reviewed by the chief minister’s office,” the CM said.
