Development works put on fast track in Devipatan: Yogi

Wednesday, 22 March 2023 | PNS | Lucknow

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Tuesday  that the recently-held Global Investors’ Summit (GIS) had yielded good results for the region, attracting investment proposals worth Rs 11,000 crore to develop three of the four districts of the Devipatan division into aspirational districts.

“The development works have progressed fast in the region. The construction of medical colleges in three districts has been either completed or is in the process of completion,” Yogi told reporters after a review meeting in Gonda on Tuesday.

CM said setting up of a university in Devipattan had also been proposed in this year’s budget in the name of ‘Maa Pateshwari’ and that the government had sought a proposal for allotment of land for the same from officials concerned. “Construction of the airport in Shravasti is in the final stages. Very soon, this region will have air connectivity. Instructions have been given to connect every district headquarters with the Ring Road and speed up other development works,” the CM said.

Yogi said the double-engine government was working sensitively and actively for development. “Six years ago, Gautam Buddh Nagar was on top in terms of per capita income and Balrampur at the bottom while Gonda was lagging behind in cleanliness. In the last six years, all the four districts of this commissionary are moving in a positive direction. Initiatives were taken to enhance per capita income, improve public conveniences as well as boost tourism and development,” he added.

“The government has also taken steps to connect the youth with the schemes of the Centre and the state government and to provide benefits of government schemes to farmers,” Yogi said, adding that encouraging results had come out of the efforts and these districts would soon be among the leading districts of the state.

During his interaction with mediapersons, the CM announced the opening of the Information department office here. He also said that the construction of a university and medical colleges along with the implementation of the National Education Policy and introduction of quality education and state-of-the-art facilities would take the youth forward on the path of progress.

In the review meeting, instructions were also given to public representatives and officers of the four districts to accelerate setting up of facilities for the common man.
