Lucknow, 29 Aug: Uttar Pradesh has progressed from a BIMARU state to a developed state, said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday, adding that the state would become the country’s “growth engine” in the coming years.

Adityanath stated at the FICCI’s National Executive Committee Meeting (NECM) in Lucknow, “After 1985-86, Uttar Pradesh suffered a lengthy period of darkness in terms of progress… The view of Uttar Pradesh in the country and throughout the world has shifted dramatically… Before the young, business people, and citizens came, there existed an identity dilemma… Today, Uttar Pradesh has emerged from the darkness and from being a ‘BIMARU’ state to being a developed state, thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s direction and leadership…”

According to Adityanath, Uttar Pradesh’s economy will be the second-largest in the country very soon, and the next five years will be critical.

“In the coming years, UP will become the country’s leading economy and will assume its role as the country’s Growth Engine,” CM Yogi said. “UP rose from 14th to second place in ease of doing business,” stated the UP CM.

The Chief Minister also mentioned that the FICCI, the oldest industrial organisation, was hosting its annual convention in Lucknow for the first time in 38 years. “I greet you all on behalf of the people of Uttar Pradesh. This is a critical time for me,” Yogi Adityanath stated.

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister also stated that organized crime in his state had been eliminated.

“No crimes take place here,” he continued. Adityanath also stated in his speech, “Infrastructure has made significant development in Uttar Pradesh during the last six years…The Ganga Expressway, which is now under construction, connects Meerut, Ghaziabad, and Prayagraj…Today, it would take 16-17 hours to go from Meerut to Prayagraj…However, after the Ganga Expressway is completed, this time would be reduced to six hours…”

FICCI’s National Executive Committee is made up of the country’s leading industrialists, CEOs of multinational businesses, leaders of public sector enterprises, financial institutions, banks, and management
specialists. The Executive Committee meets on a regular basis in
different areas to discuss national and regional concerns.
