Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath held a meeting with MPs and MLAs of Unnao, Lucknow and Hardoi districts at his residence on Monday and sought the help of public representatives in speeding up industrial development of the region.
Describing the role of public representatives as important in shaping the possibilities of eco-tourism in Unnao and Hardoi, the chief minister spoke about the need to prepare a better action plan and make necessary efforts. “This will also generate employment in the area,” he said.
The chief minister said that after inviting 16 countries of the world to the proposed Global Investors’ Summit in February, Team UP's visit to major cities of the country had been successful. He said the global industry was impressed by the state's industrial development-friendly environment and investment-friendly policies and the state was getting investments worth lakhs of crores for rupees.
“Every district of the state will get its benefit. This summit is necessary from the point of view of connecting the youth with employment,” he said.
Taking inspiration from foreign and domestic investor roadshows, various districts organised investor conferences with their own efforts. Investment proposals worth thousands of crores are being received in these district-level investor conferences. Communication with the investors should be continued at places where the events have already been held, the chief minister said.
The chief minister said that today investment was coming in every district of the state. He said Lucknow, Unnao and Hardoi districts had opportunities in every sector. “The entire region has immense opportunities in every sector, including agriculture, food processing, dairy, textiles, biofuels and solar energy. Major companies are coming to set up their units in the Lucknow node of the Defence Industrial Corridor,” he pointed out.
Emphasising infrastructure development in villages, the chief minister said that the government had started 'Mathrubhumi Yojana'. “Now anyone can directly participate in the development of his or her village. MPs, MLAs should try to connect more and more people with this scheme,” the chief minister said.
Informing the lawmakers about the plan for the development of a night safari near Kukrail picnic spot in the state capital Lucknow, the chief minister said that this scheme would expand the possibilities of tourism in Lucknow which was becoming the standard of modern urban development.
“In the last five and a half years, proper roads have been made even in remote villages. Clean drinking water has become accessible in every house. There is strong law and order. There is a huge land bank, better connectivity and efficient human resources. By developing better infrastructure, a better environment has been created for industrial development. The state government is giving all possible cooperation for development. All of you should do branding of this potential of your area. With this investment will come here and employment opportunities will be created,” the chief minister said.
The chief minister said that public representatives should give wide publicity to the new industrial policies of the state government. “A discussion should be organised among the youth in universities, colleges, polytechnics and ITIs. Public representatives should participate in these programmes,” he said.
