Today’s UP is unmatched, development is everywhere: Dr Dinesh Sharma
Deputy Chief Minister Dr Dinesh Sharma said that today’s UP is unmatched and development is everywhere. In the last four years, there has been no wind of change but a storm. The work which was not done in 70 years has been done by the CM Yogi-led government of four and a half years under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Seeing the positive changes in the state, the opponents are also forced to press their fingers under their teeth. From bringing investment to the development of modern infrastructure and public welfare, the work has been done at such a speed that the picture of the state has completely changed. Now there is no place left for criminals in UP, which is called the refuge of crime and criminals. The criminals have fled from UP and now the Ganga of peace is flowing in the state. There has been a rain of investment in the rule of law. Investment proposals of about four and a half lakh crores have been received, out of which work has started on the proposals of three lakh crores.
The situation is that in times like COVID-19, when investors from big countries of the world were wrapping up their business, even at that time there have been investment proposals worth 56 thousand crores in the state. This change is the result of the reform and performance of the government which has won the trust of investors. Now with this investment, the fate of the people of the state has started to change. While addressing the press conference, the Deputy Chief Minister said that out of the schemes like Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Yojana, Smart City Scheme, Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Program, UP is at the first place in the implementation of 44 schemes in the country.
Due to development, the state has become the second largest economy of the country today. The economy of 11 lakh crores has become 22 lakh crores today. Per capita income has doubled. Dr. Sharma said that the challenge of improving the education system of the state, which has become infamous due to the actions of the previous governments, was big, but the continuous efforts of the present government have converted that education system into A-grade system of the country. The education system of today’s UP is really showing the way to other states. The state infamous for copying has become a model for copyless examination. A unique model of conducting mock-free examinations has been prepared using technology.
Changes in the curriculum after independence have given new wings to the dreams of the students. The digital library built in UP is becoming a medium to pacify the curiosity of the students and increase the knowledge. The newly opened 12 universities are helping in spreading the light of knowledge. UP is also on top in the implementation of new education policy and is providing new opportunities. Miraculous changes have taken place in the education system which has progressed on the mantra of quality education, stress free students, copyless examination and happy mind teacher. In the government of four and a half years, four and a half lakh jobs have been given without any controversy. The goal of the government is to completely eliminate unemployment in the state.
During the tenure of the present government, crores of direct and indirect jobs have been created through various schemes. Four and a half years ago, today’s self-sufficient UP could not even be imagined, but the BJP government has done that which was beyond the imagination of the opponents. Today, development means creation of infrastructure, better working environment, crime control and public welfare schemes should reach the people without any discrimination. Nearly double the assistance received from the Government of India in various central aid schemes till the year 2017-21 as compared to the year 2012.17. Expressways are becoming the identity of UP and helping in economic progress. The country’s largest Ganga Expressway is going to be built in the state at a cost of about 36400 crores. After its construction, there is a possibility of employment generation for about 20 thousand people. Employment of youth is the priority of the government.
Jewar International Airport Yamuna Expressway is proving to be a boon for Industrial Development Authority. Due to this airport, big investors of the country and abroad are taking interest in setting up their venture near the airport. An investment of about Rs 50,000 crore is likely to come from the Electronic City to be built on the banks of Yamuna Expressway near Jewar Airport. In the new Uttar Pradesh of New India, houses were built for 42 lakh poor people. Similarly, 2.61 crore individual toilets have been constructed under the Swachh Bharat Mission. 1.56 crore free gas connections were given under the Ujjwala scheme, while more than 01 crore 38 lakh free electricity connections have been provided under the Saubhagya scheme.

Apart from this, Rs 37,521 crore has been transferred to 02 crore 53 lakh 98 thousand farmers since the inception of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. 08 lakh 80 thousand street vendors have been benefited through Pradhan Mantri Svanidhi Yojana. The outlook of the country and the world about Uttar Pradesh has changed. Out of 100 mobiles manufactured in the country, 70 mobiles are being made in the state. Noida is on the way to become an IT hub and the largest data center is also built in UP. He said that the COVID-19 management of the state government has been appreciated in the country and the world. UP is also at the fore in providing vaccine cover to the citizens of the state, about 10 crore people have been vaccinated. Even today more than two lakh tests daily are being done.
The government has pursued the goal of Jeevan Bhi Jeevika Bhi in a balanced way. Uttar Pradesh had maintained economic activities while keeping citizens safe in the second wave of COVID-19. The dream of corruption-free UP has now turned into reality. The Prime Minister has made such an arrangement that today, on a single click, the entire money of the beneficiary of any scheme reaches their accounts. Dr Sharma said that all the schemes like free gas connection and house to house toilets show the commitment of the government towards women welfare. In order to give a new identity to development in Uttar Pradesh, new roads being built up to village-village are going to bring a big change.
The first and second phases of Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana have been completed in the state in four and a half years. The construction of 57162.55 km of road has been completed in the state. The maintenance work of these roads for five years has been given to the road builders. Villages are also being connected to the Internet.
