Previous govts promoted encroachment: UP CM

Friday, 02 August 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that the previous governments promoted encroachment of government land while his regime not only freed such land from encroachers but also used it for development.

Yogi Adityanath said this while dedicating Nausadh bus station built at a cost of Rs 2.85 crore to the people in Gorakhpur. 

“The previous regimes closed the bus station and handed over the land to land mafia but the Bharatiya Janata Party government freed the encroached land and opened it for operation. Buses going to Lucknow and Varanasi will pass the Nausadh bus station,” the Chief Minister said while addressing a gathering in Gorakhpur on Thursday. 

Yogi Adityanath said that another bus station would be constructed in Moharipur for buses going towards Siddharthnagar and Sonauli.  

“Providing good transport facility is the priority of this government. Therefore, the government has decided to introduce electric buses in 10 metro cities, including Gorakhpur,” the Chief Minister said.

At the membership campaign of the BJP, organised on Naushad bus station premises, Yogi Adityanath administered membership of the party to 465 roadside vendors. 

Besides, the Chief Minister inaugurated a Rs 6.24 crore project for the beautification of Mujeshwaranath Shiva temple in Bhawapar and also inaugurated 34 road projects worth Rs 100 crore.

Yogi Adityanath said that religious places were symbols of national unity. “In each Assembly constituency, two religious sites will be developed as tourist places, irrespective of the religion to which they belong as religion teaches us to be humble and tolerant,” the Chief Minister said.

Speaking about development of Gorakhpur, the Chief Minister said that a comprehensive action plan had been prepared by Gorakhpur Municipal Corporation, Gorakhpur Development Authority and district administration for rehabilitation about 9,000 of roadside vendors of the city.  

“These vendors will be provided pension as per directives of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Registration of bona fide vendors has started and over four lakh vendors across the state will be systematic rehabilitated,” he promised.

Expressing concern over road accidents, the Chief Minister appealed to the people to wear helmets and seat belts before every journey. He also urged car drivers not to use black films on windows.
