Gorakhpur: Chief minister Yogi Adityanath hailed PM Narendra Modi for making come true the long-cherished dream of the entire nation having one symbol, one chief and one law.
Speaking after laying the foundation of development projects on Sunday, Yogi said, “Since independence, it was our dream to have ‘Ek Nishan, ek Pradhan aur ek Vidhan (one symbol, one chief and one law) and PM Modi has made it come true. With dilution of Article 370, the entire country is now tied in one string.”
“UP government is determined for development of the state. I am happy to say that benefits of government schemes are now reaching to the last man of society without any discrimination. After law banning triple talaq, Muslim women have got freedom from a bad practice. Now no one can exploit or harass them with triple talaq,” he added.
CM Yogi visited Lehra Devi temple in Maharajganj district and Tarkulha Devi temple in Gorakhpur district. He laid foundation stone of 14 projects worth Rs 17.73 crore in Maharajganj.
He said the temple of Tarkulha Devi, the diety worshipped by freedom fighter Senani Babu Bandhu Singh, will be renovated with Rs 2.12 crore.
“Maharajganj district is moving towards development with pace and three nagar panchayats, Farenda, Sonauli and Ghughli of the district have been included under Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyaya development scheme and so the pace of development will improve.”
CM Yogi said, “During 1857 mutiny, great Bandhu Singh took the pledge to free the country from British Raj. He was arrested by British and became a martyr. A memorial will be constructed here in his honour.”
“Gorakhpur AIIMS will start working with its full capacity in 2021, the centenary year of Chauri Chaura incident, and a fertilizer plant will also start working soon. 50 thousand quintal sugar will be produced in Pipraich mill.”
