Chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said the proposed investors summit in Lucknow will not only give an impetus to industrialisation but also create lakhs of jobs. The summit will be held on February 21 and 22.

“In the 10 months of government’s work, the view of industrialists about the state has changed completely and they are now inclining towards setting up industries here.” Yogi said while addressing a public meeting at the Gorakhpur Club.

At the club, he also laid foundation stone of 20 projects worth Rs 40,629.38 lakh. Besides, the CM inaugurated 33 projects worth Rs 6,033.07 lakh there. Earlier at Bhathat in the district, he inaugurated 5 projects worth Rs 81.13 crore and laid foundation stone of 10 projects worth Rs 16.68 crore.

The CM, who was on his second and last day of visit to Gorakhpur, also announced that the state government will provide jobs opportunities to 20 lakh youths in days to come.

Referring to his government’s decision to fill 1.62 lakh vacancies in state police department, Yogi asked the youth to start preparing. He added that transparency would be ensured during the recruitment process.

He also announced that 1.37 lakh vacancies of assistant teachers and 20,000 vacancies of primary teachers will also come. “Every youth of the state will get equal employment opportunity and recruitments will not be limited to specific geographical area,” the CM said.

Attacking the previous government for the alleged anomalies in UPPSC recruitments, the CM said no one will be allowed to play with career of youths and that a CBI investigation was under way to probe recruitments done earlier through the commission.

Alleging that during the non-BJP governments power supply was confined to selected districts, the CM said that all 75 districts in the state were getting round-the-clock electricity supply without discrimination under his rule.

Among the projects foundations of which were laid by him included an ITI in Bhathat. Moreover, the CM said the development of Purvanchal, once known as sugar bowl for extensive sugar production, collapsed as sugar mills were closed down by the previous governments and were sold at throwaway prices.

“The defunct sugar mills are now being restarted to ensure growth and prosperity of farmers. Rs 400 crore has been allocated for the revival of Pipraich sugar mill and we are going to lay the foundation stone of Munderwa sugar mill next week,” Yogi said. “Sugar mills will also be set up at Meerut, Resra and Baghpat,” he added.

The CM, who held a Janta Darbar at Gorakhnath Temple and heard grievances of over 500 complainants gathered from different districts, said his government was working for the development of every section of the society.

“The benefit of government schemes should reach every eligible person without any discrimination and the government will ensure this by launching a special drive,” he added. .

Paying tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his death anniversary, Yogi said, “Bapu’s dream of ‘Sawraj’ will be realised when the development reaches villages.” He also announced to distribute 1.60 lakh pairs of school uniform to primary schools students.
