Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said that education was a means for understanding the emotions of the people of the society.
Interacting with the students from IIT Palakkad, Kerala and Lakshadweep during Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat Yuva Sangam programme at his official residence, the chief minister said that with the inspiration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Ministry of Education had started this novel experiment; Shankaracharya, who was also from Kerala, arrived here many years ago and established four ‘matts’.
“Education is a means for understanding the emotions of the people of the society. Many of you must have come to Uttar Pradesh for the first time; One always has a love for the country, no matter where they are from. All the states stand together when the nation is in trouble,” he said.
The chief minister further said that Uttar Pradesh was the largest state in the country in terms of population, and like Kerala, Uttar Pradesh represented the spiritual and cultural heritage of the nation. There were six crore Muslims in this state. Despite this, there were no curfew-no riots in the state.”
Drawing a comparison between the present government and the previous government, the chief minister said that till six years ago there was no such situation here.
"During religious occasions, incidents of violence used to take place, and people would often migrate. However, over the past six years, we have made concerted efforts to transform this situation. Youth and common people extended their full support as well. As a result, Uttar Pradesh is now making rapid strides towards progress,” Yogi said.
The chief minister pointed out that for security, we established dialogue with every caste and religion. He said that any matter could be resolved through dialogue.
“We take action against those who play with security without any discrimination. In Prayagraj, 25–30 lakh people will be taking a bath today. There are no issues because events are organised with utmost dedication.”
The chief minister said that the target should only be set after a trade has been fixed. To keep up with technology, we are giving 2 crore young people tablets or smartphones. There is a new enthusiasm among people for the use of technology.
Of the 45 students, 10 are from Lakshadweep and 35 are from Kerala. They were elated to meet Yogi Adityanath.
