Akhilesh Yadav can be attributed for writing the ‘Story of Development’ in Uttar Pradesh. He was elected as the CM in 2012 and since then has worked tirelessly for the upliftment of urban and rural population. It has been 4 years since then and the state is gearing towards the next set of Vidhan Sabha Elections. The state is witnessing massive hue and cry from the other contesting parties; sometimes on social media and other times in organized maha sabhas. On the 3rd of November, 2016 Akhilesh Yadav is launching a Vikas Rath Yatra which will traverse the entire state and allow him to closely interact with the people. During this journey, this highly driven leader will shed light on the development work done across the state.
Let us see some of the biggest development projects in Urban and Rural Uttar Pradesh:
URBAN UP’S VIKAS:
Along with HCL, Akhilesh Yadav hatched the plan for an IT City in the state capital. The first batch of training has already been initiated and the jobs will have special reservation for women. Now the youth of the state will not have to leave their hometown in search or better jobs or even education. Uttar Pradesh under Akhilesh Yadav has been well equipped to sustain employment and a better lifestyle.
Infrastructure has been a focus point of Akhilesh Yadav and he has done a great job in connecting cities, towns, and villages. Lucknow-Agra Expressway is one of the most important road networks of the state. Apart from this Samajwadi Purvanchal Expressway connecting Eastern Uttar Pradesh and Lucknow, and Lucknow-Azamgarh-Baliya Samajwadi Highway are also being constructed. All major districts have been connected to each other, improving business, import, and export both within the state and outside.
In the last few years, Uttar Pradesh has seen immense growth in the medical sector in terms of facilities, administration, and infrastructure. Uttar Pradesh Government under Akhilesh Yadav has ensured that every single person is healthy and can afford medication or treatment in the state. From increasing the number of seats across research and other medical fields to give free treatment for incurable diseases to providing free medication, there has been a huge leap in the health care sector. 102 and 108 Samajwadi Ambulance Sewa has been a lifeline for many and has helped more than 1.5 crore people in the state alone.
RURAL UP’S VIKAS
Kisaan Bazaar or Farmer’s Market has definitely been a boon to the farmers of Uttar Pradesh. Thanks to Akhilesh Yadav, the place, and the prices have been fixed for the commodities. The farmers will also be able to buy high-quality seeds, pesticides, and fertilizers, at no added cost. This scheme by Akhilesh Yadav was well appreciated by the farmers and buyers, alike.
Akhilesh Yadav initiated the Kamdhenu Yojna for the upliftment of farmers. As per this scheme the government has set up units with high milk yielding animals and given tax rebates as incentives. This has improved the state’s economy, provide employment, and ensure healthy produce in abundance. The smaller units are covered under Mini and Micro Kamdhenu Yojna.
Samajwadi Pension Plan
The beneficiaries of this rural and urban development scheme are the families who have no source of income. As per the Samajwadi Pension Plan, 55 lakh families have been given Rs. 500 per month. The amount will be increased with time.
Apart from these, there are multiple schemes run by Akhilesh Yadav to uplift rural and urban population of Uttar Pradesh. We will know about all this and more in the Vikas Rath Yatra, so stay tuned!
