Also, he vowed to keep the policies of PM Narendra Modi in mind and work for the betterment of the state.

He cited the example of Eastern Uttar Pradesh where law and order is strict. He said he has asked for a report on the mills closed under the previous regime. Stressing on the development agenda of his government, Adityanath told people that a new tradition of development for UP has been launched and by June 15 the roads in the state won’t have potholes.

Those below the poverty line will get free power connection.
