"The UP government despite non-cooperation of the Centre has constructed as many as 330 bridges across the state during last three years and set a record by completing a bridge in three days time by maintaining high standard," Yadav said.
Giving a detailed account of his government's achievements during its over-three-years-rule, Yadav said at a function that his government had set seven priorities and claimed it had been able to achieve all its targets in the fields of education, health, road constructions, providing employment, making availability of power and ameliorating lot of farmers.
The CM said that the unemployment allowance and distribution of 'Kanya Dhan' scheme had attracted Chief Ministers of Uttarakhand, Jharkhand, Rajasthan and other states who had shown interest in these schemes and sought the cooperation of UP government in the successful implementation of these schemes in their respective states.
For the first time the World Bank has hailed the all round development of the state and as a result top industrialists have started projects particularly in power sector, he said.
Ahead of the assembly polls in the state, Yadav asked his cabinet colleagues, state legislators and members of Parliaments besides all functionaries of the Samajwadi Party to propagate the achievements of his government to the masses.
