UP is becoming more hopeful under the Yogi government, according to Modi
According to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Yogi Adityanath's administration is bringing optimism and ambition to Uttar Pradesh, which had previously been without hope.
Within hours after breaking ground and unveiling 28 construction projects totaling more than Rs 1,780 crore in Varanasi, his parliamentary district, Modi was speaking to the people.
"Uttar Pradesh is emerging from despair and heading in the direction of hope and ambitions. Prosperity is guaranteed when security and amenities are made accessible "Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, has completed the first year of his second term in office, and Modi praised his achievements.
Modi referred to himself as a "sewak (servant)" and added, "The progress of Kashi is being debated all throughout the nation and the globe," during an event at the Sampurnanand Sanskrit University grounds. "Everyone visiting Kashi is receiving fresh vitality from this place. Even then, nine years ago, many were concerned that Banaras and Kashi would remain unchanged. But the hard effort of the people of Kashi disproved every assumption "says he.
The prime minister said that both the ancient and modern forms could be observed in Kashi at the same time.
He continued by saying that the Ganga ghat and the corridor leading to the Kashi Vishwanath temple were well-liked both in India and overseas.
More than seven crore visitors visited Varanasi in the previous year, creating job possibilities for locals, according to Modi.
Also, he said that a significant push to support organic farming will start on both sides of the Ganga.
"There will be a significant campaign launched on both banks of the Ganga river. Five kilometers on either side, natural farming will be promoted. For this, provisions have been prepared in the budget "explained he.
The passenger ropeway from Varanasi Cantonment station to Godowlia was previously given the green light by the prime minister. Estimated project costs total Rs. 645 crore.
The five stations along the 3.75-kilometer ropeway system will make it easier for locals, pilgrims, and visitors to move about.
Also, as part of the Namami Gange project, Modi lay the cornerstone for a 55 MLD (million litres per day) sewage treatment facility at Bhagwanpur. An estimated 300 crore rupees would be spent on the project's construction.
Modi lay the cornerstone for the Phase 2 and Phase 3 rebuilding of Sigra Stadium as part of the Khelo India initiative.
Also, he dedicated 19 drinking water projects for the Jal Jeevan Project, which would help over three lakh people in 63 panchayats.
The prime minister dedicated 59 drinking water projects included in the mission in order to further develop the rural drinking water infrastructure.
Modi said earlier, speaking at the "One Global TB Summit" on World TB Day, that India's "Vasudev Kutumbakam" philosophy is providing the contemporary world with an integrated vision and answers.
The prime minister stated India is trying to eradicate TB by 2025 as opposed to the global objective of 2030 and announced a number of efforts to do so.
"The concept of India, "Vasudhaiva Kutumbkam" (the whole world is one family), mirrors the country's image. This antiquated idea is providing a comprehensive view and answers to the new world, "added he.
