Complimenting the UP government for getting projects worth Rs 60,000 crore executed in five months’ time, Modi, in a lighter vein, said the state’s industry minister Satish Mahana was not aware of what he and his team had achieved.
“I don’t know why Satish Mahana sounded rather low key while referring to launch of projects worth Rs 60,000 crore,” Modi said.
“Rs 60,000 crore bahut hota hai ji (Rs 60000 crore is a big amount, sir). It’s a terrific achievement. I have been a chief minister too in the past. I know Rs 60,000 crore investments in just five months is a great task executed by Team UP,” Modi said.
“I am happy you didn’t leave it all on any one individual’s whims and made the process transparent and policy driven through online investment portal Nivesh Mitra,” he said.
