Yogi disheartened over plight of farmers, youth

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that he is disheartened over the pathetic condition of farmers, fishermen and youths in the state, which has compelled him to visit Karnataka and console the deprived classes over the provided by Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre.

He was commenting during a huge rally at Maravanthe on Tuesday, on Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s remarks over his frequent visits to Karnataka.

He said Siddaramaiah is incapable of achieving what he has achieved in one year in Uttar Pradesh. “We have introduced several programmes for farmers, youths and women. Karnataka is far behind in terms of progress and the Congress government in the state has utterly failed to implement the programmes assured by the NDA government at the Centre,” he alleged.

Charging that the Congress is supporting terror activities and wants the county to be the land of terror, he said that Karnataka government has no time to promote trade.

“The future of the youths is bleak as no employment opportunities are generated in the state,” he said. He added that 38 crore bank accounts have been opened under Jan Dhan programme introduced by the prime minister.

Elaborating on his achievements in Uttar Pradesh, Adityanath said that the loan of 86 lakh farmers has been waived and 11 lakh houses have been are built for the poor. About 40,000 toilets are built for the poor in one year, he claimed.

He claimed that he achieved what the Karnataka chief minister could not achieve in five years in just one year.

He censured that Congress and its chief minister wants to make Karnataka an ATM, the treasure of money and loot it. The Congress government wants to celebrate Tipu Sultan Jayanti and not Shivaji Jayanti, he charged.

He addressed a public rally in Sullia.
