On the 19th March 2017, BJP leadership choosed Yogi Adityanath as the Chief Minister, the decision which gained traction from both sides. From one side it was seen with the prism of dogma and narrowness whereas on the other hand it was considered to be important milestone in journey of Hindutva and cultural unity of India.

Uttar Pradesh is now ranked on Second position in ‘Ease of doing business index’ this year, only behind Andhra Pradesh. It was a great leap i.e of 10 positions as compared with last year. New film city in Noida is also proposed now, which would play an instrumental role in promotion of our cultural soft power as well as will help in creating jobs there. Zero corruption at the apex is now made possible which seems to be impossible in the reign of Mayawati & Akhilesh Yadav. Electricity cut is not any issue now and nearly 30% of the state is under 24*7 power supply range. 

The conditions of the state than was deeply disturbing after the 15 years rule of mismanagement, corrupt system and mafia raj, the revenue was meagre, literally no investment and the left businesses were heading to different places in the country. There was enormous challenges in this state of mammoth possibilities, the biggest challenge for the newly elected CM was to change the tide of challenges into opportunities. 
Yogi started with the long standing problem of farmers and farming which is generally neglected in the light of manufacturing and service sectors. Government sanctioned ₹36 thousand crores for the loan waiver of small and marginal farmers. Further fixed Minimum Selling Price(MSP) for crops like wheat and rice, with record purchase of these crops. Government paid long standing bill of ₹92 thousand crores to the sugarcane farmers and the sealing of illegal slaughter houses paved the way for long term aim of establishing dairy industries in the state. 3 new sugarcane mills are started in Munderwa, Pipraich and Ramala, due to this the capacity of sugarcane processing is increased by 27850 TCD.

Unnecessary holidays in government schools were scrapped so as to increase the study hours and efficient working of schools, modern model primary schools are constructed, free of cost supply of uniform and study material is insured to the marginal section of students and the course structure of primary education in the state is changed to NCERT in order to suite the current time.

In the area of Higher Education – 14 new agricultural science centres are established, whereas 6 more are in pipeline. Construction of 15 new medical colleges were started out of which 7 are full functional from the year 2019, the government has plan to start construction of 15 more Medical colleges from year 2020. This is part of the high profile agenda of Yogi government to provide at least one medical college for every two districts in the state. Gorakhpur AIIMS is now operational and a new cancer institute is also coming. A National Law University is proposed in Prayagraj, 3 new state universities, 1 police forensic university and a Ayush University is proposed to be constructed in the state.

To negate the disparity in the basic developmental work, the very great infrastructure work like Purvanchal Expressway, Bundelkhand Expressway, Ganga Expressway and Defence Corridor is chalked through the least developed regions of the province and is carried out in pace. Before 2017 only 2 cities of Uttar Pradesh were connected with the good Air connectivity whereas now 8 cities are connected and construction is in pace on 12 new airport projects. An International Airport project in coming up in Jewar near Noida. All these basic infrastructural developments with the cherry topping of recently organised Investors Summit will produce not only employment but will be thrust in nation’s development.

Progress in infrastructure development and very tight law and order situation under Yogi Adityanath is the main positive impact that interest of Investors in the state is increased by 18.6%. MoUs worth of ₹4.68 lakh crores were signed in Investors Summit 2018 out of which 371 projects are working on the ground. 3.3 million direct and indirect jobs will be created after the full development of these infrastructure project by 2022. Uttar Pradesh Government will be organising an one of its kind of “Global Investors Summit” this year i.e 2020.

Without good irrigation infrastructure, no agricultural growth can be achieved. Yogi Adityanath government has completed long standing’Bansagar Irrigation Project’. Arjun Sahayak, Bhawani and Bandai Irrigation project is done in Bundelkhand whereas Saryu Canal, Mid-Ganga Canal in Plain areas are completed which will irrigate extra 18 lakh hectare land and is boon for nearly 50 lakh farmers. Water scarcity is the pressing problem in Bundelkhand region, the new project named “Khet Talab Yojana” is started in which nearly 8 thousand ponds are constructed by government on private lands, 6 thousand more ponds are to be constructed by end of 2020. Aami river in Gorakhpur, Tamsa river in Ayodhya, Odi river in Lalitpur and Gomti river in Pilibhit is rejuvenated in order to make availability of water. 14 crore litres of daily sewage discharge to river Ganga is discontinued by closing Sisamau sewer in Kanpur.

Yogi Adityanath has many more challenges to cope with and many more duties to discharge. The coming time will testify whether he is able to do or not.
