UP now preferred destination for investors after improved law and order: CM

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday said the state has become the preferred destination for investors after the improvement of law and order situation.

There have been no riots in the state in the past five and a half years. The country receives huge investments and jobs are created. He said highways and expressways are now being constructed in Uttar Pradesh.

According to a senior official, Adityanath has launched several development projects worth Rs 267 crore in Bijnor district.

Citing the latest report of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), the Prime Minister said that there had been no sectarian riots under his regime and that the country was on the path of development.

He also said that Uttar Pradesh is working tirelessly towards the goal of one district and one medical college.

Emphasizing that the state government has a zero tolerance crime policy, the prime minister said his government will not allow the security of UP merchants and businessmen to be violated.

The priest-turned-politician also noted that the government is carrying out development work in various sectors, including education, health, agriculture and job generation, on a priority basis.

Adityanath also visited Moradabad department and had a review meeting with the official on the ongoing development work.

Until 2017, people associated with the MSME industry were in despair due to restrictions placed on the Pollution Control Board and other departments. He added that due to the innovative scheme of the One District One product launched in 2018, the copper business in Moradabad has increased from Rs 4,000 crore to over Rs 10,000 crore.
