Bundelkhand has been in news for some time now. The natives had to face quite a few issues due to lack of rainfall which lead to a drought. This has been the situation for multiple years. But this time, Akhilesh Yadav, unlike any other CM in the past, has taken some radical steps for the upliftment of Bundelkhand.
The Uttar Pradesh government will install 3527 hand pumps in the dry district. For the same Rs. 20.85 crore have been sanctioned in the Budget 2016-17 as well. Seeing the current situation of the entire region, the People’s CM has decided to distribute free grains and pulses along with other utilities, till conditions don’t improve in the famine-hit areas.
To witness and understand the exact situation, Akhilesh Yadav visited Bundelkhand last week and spoke to the people. He also distributed the first round of relief material personally to one and all. People have huge hopes and expectations from him because never before has Uttar Pradesh had a socialist CM who worked for overall development.
