MUMBAI: Natives of Uttar Pradesh are no longer ashamed of their identity rather they now proudly flaunt it, said the state’s chief minister Yogi Adityanath.
Adityanath is on a two-day visit to Mumbai to woo domestic investors for the government’s Global Investor Summit to be held in Lucknow next month. After visiting 16 countries to attract investors to UP the government launched its domestic tour from Mumbai.
Addressing migrants from UP settled in Mumbai at a South Mumbai hotel on Wednesday, Adityanath said UP natives five years ago suffered from an identity crisis which is no longer the case.
“Five years ago people from Uttar Pradesh would not disclose their identity nor the name of their native state be it in India or abroad. But now they proudly flaunt their identity,” he said.
On the BJP’s second consecutive win in the state, Adityanath said it was the first time that a government in UP was voted back to power with a two-thirds majority.
“This was possible only because of the work done by my government and the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The law and order situation in the state improved as also women’s security ,” he said, adding infrastructure including expressways, air connectivity, metro and railway networks were being created, rivers were being converted into waterways. “We have four-lane interstate connectivity, airports and metro networks.”
Highlighting his government’s achievements, Adityanath said during the Covid pandemic no migrant left the state and those who returned were taken care of. “We don’t run away from challenges. We face them head-on,” he said.
