Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on September 19, 2021, said that the objective of the Bharatiya Janata Party is that every section of the society should be equally benefited from the government schemes. He said that the various sub-organizations of the Bharatiya Janata Party like Scheduled Caste Front, Backward Class Front, Mahila Morcha, Yuva Morcha, Kisan Morcha promote public welfare by connecting with the system and uphold ‘Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat’.
Addressing the state executive meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party Backward Class Morcha in Ayodhya yesterday, the Chief Minister said that great men do not belong to any particular party. Their contribution is for the country and society. All the people should do the work of carrying forward their works by keeping a sense of reverence for the great men. It is the responsibility of all of us to realize the concept of ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat’.
The Chief Minister said that those who got power in the name of backward classes had provided the benefit of Poorvadasam scholarship to only 57,678 students during their tenure. The government, after increasing this number by 10 times, provided the scholarship to more than 07 lakh students during the COVID-19 period last year. This year, Rs 175 crore has been arranged by the government for the Poorvadasam scholarship. The Samajwadi government had given scholarships and fee reimbursement to only 10,44,000 students during its tenure. In the year 2019-20, Yogi’s government has provided 20,22,800 students with the benefit of post-matric scholarship and fee reimbursement. This year, a provision of Rs 1,200 crore has been made for this scheme, which will be transferred to the account of students on October 02, 2021 and January 26, 2022.
The Chief Minister said that in 2017-18, the government provided assistance of Rs 154 crore to 76,110 families under the marriage grant scheme. Marriage grant has been provided to 01 lakh families in the year 2019-20. ‘O-Level’ and ‘CCC’ have been arranged for OBC students. In the year 2015-16, 7,394 students and in the year 2016-17, 7,392 students were trained. A total of Rs 14 crore was made available for training in these two years. Every year 14 to 15 crore rupees are being spent by our government on the training of ‘O-Level’ and ‘CCC’ students.
He added that during the COVID-19 period, the government and the BJP workers took the benefits of the schemes to help people uninterruptedly. The Chief Minister said that the mantra of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas’ is that everyone should get the benefits of the schemes of the government without discrimination. He said that those who mislead people in the name of social justice, tried to deepen the social gap by promoting caste hatred, are all exposed. The Chief Minister said that be it the country or the state, the blessings of the people and the mass base on the Bharatiya Janata Party continued to grow.
The Chief Minister said that the life ideals of Maharana Pratap, Maharaja Suheldev were not presented as they deserved. The characters of nationalism have given rise to national dissatisfaction. Foreign invaders could not dare to attack India for 150 years. If the society had kept Maharaja Suheldev as its ideal, then in the coming period also no foreign invader would have dared to enter India. No one can dare to damage the Shri Ram temple in Ayodhya and humiliate the Hindu society in the name of Shri Ram Mandir. Work was done to divide the great men into the caste camps and reduce their dignity.
According to him, big campaigns and movements were launched to free the country from the chains of slavery. In this struggle for independence, people of different castes belonging to the Backward Classes Front worked together. These are not castes, but the fighters of the front lines of Hindu society. Nishadraj’s attachment and dedication to Lord Shri Ram cannot be forgotten and hence the government is building a grand memorial of Nishadraj in Shringverpur. The legacy of thousands of years was forgotten. During the previous governments, no one wanted to come to Ayodhya because of the fear of communalism.
Yogi Adityanath said that with the formation of the government in the year 2017, for the first time after the permission of the Sant Samaj and after consultation with the public representatives, 51,000 lamps were lit in Ayodhya, showing their faith in Lord Shri Ram. At present, Deepotsav is giving a new identity to Uttar Pradesh all over the world. Artists associated with Ramlila of the country and the world were honoured. By forming the Mati Kala Board, the lamps were integrated with the state’s economy. Prajapati Samaj is strengthening itself with these lamps. From April to June, soil-free, electric and solar chalk of the village pond were provided by the state government for Prajapati society. The Chief Minister said that this year seven and a half lakh diyas will be lit in the Deepotsav program and all these diyas are being made in Ayodhya.
Earlier people had to depend on China for the idol of Shri Lakshmi-Ganesh. The idols and pottery of Shri Lakshmi-Ganesh are being made by the potters associated with the Mati Kala Board. This also created employment and the festivals are fulfilling the vision of a self-reliant India. The previous governments did not pay any attention in this regard. The Chief Minister said that the benefit of Mukhyamantri Kanya Sumangala Yojana has been provided to more than 10 lakh girls. Under this, the state government is providing Rs 15,000 to each girl child in six installments. In addition, it is providing additional financial assistance of Rs 51,000 for the daughter’s marriage.
Expressing gratitude to the Prime Minister for providing constitutional recognition to the National Commission for Backward Classes, the Chief Minister said that the previous governments had never done any work in this regard. It is the result of the vision of the Prime Minister that the Commission, which takes forward the problems of backward classes and their welfare works, has been strengthened. Now no one will be able to dacoit on the rights of the backward classes. The Bharatiya Janata Party has respected your faith. Public welfare schemes have been taken to door-to-door. The process of job and employment generation has been taken forward with commitment. The Chief Minister said that every Indian will have to dedicate his life to realize the Prime Minister’s vision of ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat’.
The Chief Minister said that earlier Uttar Pradesh was the sixth economy of the country. Today, Uttar Pradesh has become the number-2 economy of the country. Earlier, Uttar Pradesh was at number 14 in the ease of doing business i.e. ‘Ease of Doing Business’, today the state has come at number 2. If any person in the world wants to look towards India to invest, then first giving priority to Uttar Pradesh. Investment in the state means growth and an increase in employment. Today, a favourable environment has been created for investment in Uttar Pradesh as the state government has established security and strong law and order. To achieve the goal of security and good governance, the benefits of government schemes have been extended to every citizen without any discrimination.
He said that the government has done the work of taking every migrant worker and labourer to their homes. By providing ration card, social security of Rs.02 lakh and health cover of Rs.05 lakh was also provided. The BJP government is making arrangements for free ration to 15 crore people. He said that we all have to be ready for the coming assembly elections. People have to be made aware of the public welfare works of the government till every nook and corner of the state. Society has to be made aware of those who do caste politics. Some people want to make the state a riot commission again. To expose such parties, it is necessary once again that the Government of the Bharatiya Janata Party should carry forward the works of public welfare.
