Everyone knew that Uttar Pradesh was in for a major makeover when Akhilesh Yadav came to power in 2012, as the youngest Chief Minister of the state. Right from the beginning, he ensured the overall development of the state and its people. From improving the economic condition of the state to providing exceptional healthcare to the residents, he left no sphere untouched!
Very soon he will be launching the election campaign for the upcoming Vidhan Sabha Elections in the state with ‘Samajwadi Vikas Rath Yatra-Vikas Se Vijay Ki Ore’! This literally translates to the movement from ‘development to victory’; unfolding the journey of Uttar Pradesh under Akhilesh Yadav.
The time has come for Akhilesh Yadav to showcase his work to the people of the state. But before that let us see the Progress Report from 2012-1016 of dynamic Akhilesh.
‘Metro-fying’ Uttar Pradesh
Even before its inauguration, Lucknow Metro has won multiple laurels and awards. Along with this, work is in progress for Noida, Kanpur, and Ghaziabad Metros. This also marks Uttar Pradesh as the only state with 4 simultaneous metro projects running. Rapid growth of the state under this dynamic leader called for a better transport system and here it is. Lucknow Metro is almost ready for its trial run in the North South corridor and will mark one of the most efficient and sustainable metro system in the country, till date!
More Power to Women of Uttar Pradesh
Women in Uttar Pradesh have always held an important position. There are multiple schemes running for their education, economic independence, health concerns, and overall welfare. The internationally acclaimed 1090 Women Power Line has expedited more than 5 lakh cases reported by females. The Samajwadi Pension Yojana has empowered them and given them a platform to achieve their dreams. From Rani Laxmi Bai awards to special provision for sportswomen, Akhilesh Yadav has felicitated them and celebrated their achievements at multiple levels. The women of the state definitely feel safer and secured!
Digital Development for the Youth of Uttar Pradesh
A scheme initiated by Akhilesh Yadav to boost education in the state has been imitated by many states. So far, more than 15 lakh laptops have been distributed to meritorious students to encourage them to study further. This project has introduced the youth of the state to a plethora of opportunities which they never knew existed. This step has broken down all barriers which the youth of UP faced earlier, bringing them closer to achieving their ambitions. Akhilesh Yadav is also fondly known as the ‘Digital CM’ for launching various e-services to bridge the existing digital gap in the state.
Bettering Law & Order
Akhilesh Yadav launched Dial 100, a Police Emergency Response System in the state to reduce the response time of the police, by a great extent. This scheme and the latest technology has enabled the police to reach the scene of crime within 15-20 minutes. This has been claimed to be the biggest project of the state and the country for modernization of the police system. The UP Police has been given top class four and two wheelers to ensure that they meet the criteria for this service. Started a month ago, this project is already creating news and saving lives!
Securing the Present and Future of Farmers
Akhilesh government gives free water for irrigation of farms in rural areas. There has been a provision of hand pumps and tube wells, which have been installed at no extra cost. This has been done for the first time by state government and it aims at reaching 12 lakh hectares of area. The boring well is also installed for free in the villages for farmers to benefit from. This has been done after the state was hit with the worst drought because of scanty rainfall in the past few years. But now, thanks to Akhilesh Yadav the farmers have been provided for. They no longer will suffer from adverse weather conditions.
