Akhilesh in hurry to finish projects ahead of polls

Apparently keeping in mind the approaching Lok Sabha elections, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav has launched efforts to undertake development projects in the state.

On Thursday alone, the chief minister inaugurated and dedicated over 350 projects to the people involving construction of new bridges and roads and power transmission centres in different parts of the state.

“The inaugurations will continue as the state government has started implementing the promises it had made,” Akhilesh said while giving enough indication that he was in a great hurry to undertake the pro-people schemes and projects.

He listed the achievements of his government during its 16-month stint and claimed that it had done a lot for the people and expressed the hope that the Samajwadi Party (SP) would receive support from them.

“The people will vote for the party, which works for them,” he said while speaking to the reporters.

The SP regime had been going all out to woo the electorate by expediting the process of recruitment and distribution of the laptops to the students.

Only recently the government had announced that it will recruit around 1.25 lakh people in different departments ranging from police to education.

The government has already issued the advertisement to recruit constables, revenue clerks, village development officers and village panchayat officers besides hiring around 30,000 teachers for primary schools statewide.

Officials in the chief minister’s secretariat said the directives have been issued to fast-track the distribution of free laptops to the students.

“The young voters played a crucial role in ensuring victory to the SP in last Assembly polls. We want their support this time as well,” said a senior SP leader.
