Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, on Tuesday instructed officials not to disconnect farmers’ power connections over non-payment of bills.
Yogi Adityanath’s orders came while assessing development works in Agra, Saharanpur, Azamgarh, Jhansi and Moradabad divisions with public representatives.
Yogi Adityanath stated that protecting the interests of the ‘annadata’ (farmers) was the top priority of the government and said that their electricity connections should not be cut off due to non-payment of bills.
Orders have also been issued by the UP Power Corporation in this regard.
“A power cut has been reported in some areas. This is unacceptable. The Prime Minister’s Office has taken note of this and will take the strictest measures against those responsible,” a government statement said.
Yogi Adityanath also assured that the threat of stray livestock would soon be permanently resolved and said, “Today, more than nine lakh cattle have been protected in needy livestock shelters operating in the state. The plan to give Rs 900 a month to farmers those interested in keeping the livestock are also getting good results. Interested in such schemes, MPs/MLAs should try to connect the general public with them.
“The capacity of livestock facilities is also being increased for better protection of indigent livestock. We are also preparing large livestock facilities at the level of development blocs. MP-MLAs must cooperate for the availability of land for this project,” he said.
Talking about investments, Yogi Adityanath said that the Uttar Pradesh Global Investor Summit was scheduled for February 10-12.
In view of this special event, ‘Team UP’, which went to invite investors from the country and the world, has received investment proposals totaling more than Rs 12 lakh crore from the industry. The summit will help the state achieve its target of against become a $1 trillion economy by 2027,” the statement said.
Recently, some districts have received investment worth thousands of crores by hosting district investor summits. Similar efforts should be made in all districts, he added.
The Prime Minister also suggested that all MPs and MLAs engage in dialogue and regular contact with entrepreneurs, business people and migrants from their areas and inform them of the state government’s industrial and sectoral policies.
He urged the MPs and MLAs to publicize the state government’s new industrial policy by enlisting the help of the district administration, the Department of Industrial Development, Invest UP and the Chief Minister’s Office.
Yogi Adityanath also asked the MPs and MLAs to continue to inspect the development projects in their respective areas.
Speaking about Ayodhya, Kashi and Mathura, the chief minister said that these centers gained worldwide prestige because of their ancient glory.
The action plan to strengthen 84 Kosi Parikrama Marg in the Braj region should be completed on time, he said, adding that MPs should push for better connectivity in the villages connected to the Parikrama Marg.
He also said that the Chhatrapati Shivaji Memorial should be established in Agra, respecting public opinion, and added that MPs and MLAs should prepare a better plan of action by working with the Culture Department and the district administration.
The government clearly intends to find a proper solution for the complaints about Thana and Tehsil Diwas. Public representatives should inspect the arrangements themselves and ensure that complaints are resolved within the time limit, he said.
