There is no market bigger than Uttar Pradesh, he said adding that apart from the population of more than 23 crore, half of Bihar and Nepal depend on UP for their economic, educational and medical needs.

'All these things have to be communicated to investors. Make policy according to the need of investors and also prepare an action plan to make another IT hub near Jewar. Do not make a policy keeping in mind Noida as the centre, but the entire state, so that entire UP can develop,' he said. PTI NAV MKJ MKJ
