Lucknow, Apr 14 (FN Representative)The Uttar Pradesh government is working to ensure a balanced development of all the sections of the society without discrimination, said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. He said that every citizen of the state was getting the benefit of the central and state government schemes without any discrimination on caste, religion or regional basis. While paying rich tributes to the architect of the ‘Constitution of India’, Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar, on his birth anniversary, CM Yogi said here on Wednesday, ”The UP government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is constantly working to provide equality, justice and fraternity, which are fundamental elements of the Constitution of India, to every citizen.”
Remembering the role that Dr Ambedkar played in establishing the biggest democracy in the world, the UP CM said, “Babasaheb kept fighting throughout his life for the rights of Dalits and oppressed sections of the society, and always wanted to ensure they are not deprived of education, which is their fundamental right. The state government is also working in the same direction.” Giving a glimpse of the development model of UP, the CM said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi always dreamt of providing a roof to every homeless person, and to fulfill his dream, he is doing every possible effort. In this regard, more than 40 lakh houses have been constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.
The Chief Minister said that during the last four years, the state government had provided toilets to as many as 2.61 crores poor, and over 1.57 crore people were provided free gas cylinders. Along with this, electricity connections were made available to 1.38 crore people and 14 crore people are getting the benefit of the ration facility. People are reaping benefits from the schemes like Kisan Nidhi, Ayushman Bharat, including other schemes of the BJP government. Realising the dream of Babasaheb, the CM said, ”18 Atal Residential Schools in 18 divisions of the state have been set up where the children of labourers and poor are given state-of-the-art residential education. Also, mass marriage programmes are being organised on a large scale in the state without any discrimination.”
