DefExpo: Yogi promises bright future for youths

Friday, 07 February 2020 | PNS | Lucknow

Promising a bright future for youths working in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that over 35 lakh jobs would be thrown open in the state after projects taken up under DefExpo 2020 and Investors’ Summit took a final shape.
“Uttar Pradesh is a land of opportunities and provides immense possibilities and ways of investment. At the same time, this state will provide jobs to educated and skilled workers. In 2018, we organised Investors’ Summit in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced construction of defence manufacturing corridor. These two events will open up employment opportunities to 35 lakh people,” Yogi said while addressing a seminar organised by UPEIDA and FICCI at DefExpo 2020 here on Thursday.
Yogi said that industrialists could succeed in making India self-dependent in defence production and also help develop their business and the state. 
“Our policy is much better than of other states and it will attract investment here,” Yogi said.
The chief minister said that what made UP important was that the Eastern and Western dedicated freight corridors passed through the state.
“The junction of the two is at Burari (UP) and investors who invest here would definitely benefit from it. We will develop 17 cities as ‘Smart and Safe Cities’ in UP. In these, integrated command and control centres will be established and there will be huge investment possibilities,” he said.
Yogi further said that if an industrial institution had to prove itself, then there were immense opportunities for it too.
“Road connectivity of the state is very good because of its direct connectivity to the national capital and it is also connected with the world by air,” he said.
Yogi said the UP government was developing infrastructure facilities in the state at a fast pace.
“Expressways are being constructed on a large scale. Presently, work on Purvanchal Expressway is in progress and it will become operational by the year end. In addition, work on Bundelkhand Expressway will be started from February. Also, survey for Ganga Expressway from Meerut to Prayagraj has been completed and construction will begin by the end of this year,” the chief minister said.
Speaking on the occasion, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that UP would play an important role in fulfilling Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of making the country a $ 5-trillion  economy.
“Uttar Pradesh is steadily moving on the path of development. Rail, air and road connectivity has improved here and single window system is working better in the state,” he said.
The defence minister said that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was working as an able captain, so investors would no longer face difficulties in UP.
“India will be established as the third major economic power in the world by 2023 under Prime Minister Modi and UP will contribute significantly to it,” Singh stressed.
