The Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi congratulated the people of UP while inaugurating the AIIMS and fertilizer plant and for the new building of Regional Medical Research Center of ICMR in Gorakhpur on 07 December, 2021.
The Prime Minister remarked that when there is a double engine Government, then the speed of implementing developmental works is also doubled. He said when work is done with a good intention, then even disasters cannot become a hindrance. When there is a government that cares about the poor, vulnerable & disadvantaged, it also works hard and shows results by bringing them along. He said today’s event is proof that when the new India is determined, nothing is impossible.
Earlier governments had defamed the name of UP by giving protection to criminals. Today, the mafia is in jail and investors are investing freely in UP
The Prime Minister said, in a three pronged approach, the Government stopped the misuse of urea by introducing 100% neem coating of urea. He said soil health cards are given to crores of farmers so that they can decide what kind of fertilizer is needed for their farm. He said the Government laid emphasis on increasing the production of urea. Closed fertilizer plants were also forced to reopen to increase the production. The Prime Minister informed that with the completion of 5 fertilizer plants in different part of the country, 60 lakh tonnes of urea will be available in the country.
The Prime Minister appreciated the Government of Uttar Pradesh for the unprecedented work done for the sugarcane farmers in the recent years. He lauded the Government for increasing the remunerative price for sugarcane farmers, recently up to 300/- and for paying almost as much as the previous governments paid to sugarcane farmers in the past 10 years.
The Prime Minister said after independence till the beginning of this century, there was only one AIIMS in the country. Former Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee had approved 6 more AIIMS. The Prime Minister said work is going on across the country to build 16 new AIIMS in the last 7 years. He announced the goal of his Government is that every district in the country must have at least one medical college.
The Prime Minister criticized the politics of display of authority, power politics, scams and mafia that brought misery to the people of the state in the past. He appealed to people to be vigilant against such forces.
Shri Modi said today our government has opened government godowns for the poor and the UP Chief Minister is busy delivering food to every household. He added that about 15 crore people of UP are getting its benefit. Recently, PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana has been extended beyond Holi. Earlier governments had defamed the name of UP by giving protection to criminals. Today, the mafia is in jail and investors are investing freely in UP. That’s the double development of the double engine. That’s why UP has faith in a double engine government, he added.
