The Uttar Pradesh government will work for balanced development of all sections "without discrimination", Chief Minister Adityanath today said and listed law and order, security of women among his top priorities.

In his first interaction with mediapersons after taking over, Adityanath said that his government will follow the 'sabka saath sabka vikas' (With all, development for all) agenda in serving the state.

"Our government will work for all sections of the society without any discrimination. We will ensure balanced development of UP," Adityanath said.

He accused past governments of being responsible for the sorry state of affairs in Uttar Pradesh.

"In the past 15 years, UP lagged in the race for development as previous governments indulged in corruption, nepotism and failed on the law and order front due to which people were affected," he said.

Effective measures will be taken by our government for welfare of common man, he added.

"The administration will be made sensible and answerable and emphasis will be on law and order," Adityanath said.

Women's empowerment, their security and honour will also be on top of the BJP government agenda, the chief minister added.

He stressed that work would be done to make development agriculture-based as it is main source of income for people.

"We will focus on skill development of youth so that they can get job opportunities. Government appointments will be made corruption free and transparent. Investment will be promoted for industrial and economic development," Adityanath said.

"I want to assure people that BJP got votes for development and security and we will show positive results soon," he said.

The choice of the fiery hindutva mascot as chief minister had led to some apprehensions but Adityanath has emphasised that he would follow Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'sabka saath, sabka vikas' slogan.
