Basti, May 2: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday averred that the BJP, which was successful in bringing a smile on the faces of farmers and the poor in the country owing to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s skilled leadership, was now steering towards creating a victory record in the present Lok Sabha elections.
Addressing an electoral rally in the district’s Nagar Bazar, Mr Yogi said that due to PM Modi’s skillful leadership, many ambitious projects were executed for the poor, youth, women and farmers, adding that these sections had received the benefit of the projects.
Giving an account of the works undertaken by his government in the state , specially in the sugar sector, he warned that “doors of the jails have been kept open” for sugar mill owners who are not making payments of the farmers and said that sugarcane cane crushing activities” will continue till there was produce with the farmers.
“The state government is relentlessly making efforts to solve the issues of the farmers. A new sugarcane mill was established in place of the closed Munderwa sugarcane mill. Apart from crushing sugarcane, the mill will also do the work of making ethanol and electricity. In the SP and BSP’s tenure, 21 sugarcane mills were sold off after doing scams while the welfare of the farmers was ignored. Now, any kind of discrimination is not being committed in government schemes”, he further added.
The state government in its two-year-tenure has done historical progress, the loans of marginal farmers were waived off, Mr Adityanath said.
