Modi to visit UP almost every month

Wednesday, 28 July 2021 | PNS | Lucknow


To showcase the claim of how double engine governments in Delhi and Lucknow had changed the face of Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and several Union ministers will now frequently visit the poll-bound UP every month to either inaugurate or lay the foundation stone of various development schemes, until the model code of conduct comes into force.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah will visit the state capital to lay the foundation stone of Uttar Pradesh State Institute for Forensic Sciences which will come up in 50-acre land in Piparsand village of Sarojini Nagar tehsil in Lucknow on August 1. The institute will also have a seat of centre of excellence and pave the way for research in DNA testing in the state.
“Like the model followed in Bihar and West Bengal elections, the prime minister, his ministerial colleagues and senior BJP functionaries will be visiting UP regularly ahead of the imposition of the model code of conduct to inaugurate or lay the foundation stone of development projects in the state,” a senior BJP leader told this reporter on Tuesday.
The prime minister will be in Siddharthnagar to inaugurate nine new medical colleges, his second trip to the state this month after visiting Varanasi on July 15 for unveiling projects. The dates will be announced later. It will be highlighted that these medical colleges have been built under Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana and with the resources of the UP government.
Government sources confirmed that the prime minister is likely to lay the foundation stone of Asia's biggest airport at Jewar in Gautam Buddha Nagar between August 22 and 25 and the district authorities have been asked to start preparation for the programme.
Similarly, the state government is working round the clock for completion of Purvanchal Expressway which will be inaugurated in August. Already, 95 per cent work of the project has been completed and the rest will be finished by the first week of August, sources disclosed and added that the government has appointed nodal officers to complete these works on the war footing.
In October, the prime minister could again be in the state to inaugurate two All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Gorakhpur and Rae Bareli. The Centre will stress that it was the ‘double-engine’ of BJP governments at Centre and in UP that made these AIIMS projects possible. The OPDs of AIIMS in Gorakhpur and Rae Bareli are functional.
Besides, BJP president JP Nadda is also expected to launch the party's poll campaign in the second week of August and will be in Lucknow on August 7 and 8 to hold a series of meetings with state leaders.
