Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on Tuesday, paid his first visit to Meerut after being appointed the chief minister in Uttar Pradesh. At an event to honour freedom fighters in the city, Adityanath addressed a rally and said, “Jo kaum apne itihaas ko sajo kar ke nahi rakh sakti,wo apne bhugol ki raksha bhi nahi kar sakti (the community that cannot preserve its history, can certainly not protect its geography).
He also spoke about economic progress and indicated what the focus of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government will be now that it has come to power in the state. Adityanath said, “Vikas, susashan par dhyan dene ke liye aavashyak hai ki hum jaati, matt aur mazhab se upar uthh kar desh ke vikas ke baare mein soche.” (To look at the developmental and administrative aspects it is very important to go beyond religion personal opinions and creed and think about country’s overall development.)
There will be no discrimination on the basis of caste, creed and religion and our government will take everyone along, Adityanath added further. The UP CM also stressed upon Central government’s ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiiyaan’ and said that cleanliness survey was conducted before our government was formed in UP, adding that he wants everyone in the state to join Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Speaking about the Swachh Bharat ranking that was revealed recently in which the state did not perform very well, Adityanath said, “Only one city from UP is on list of cleanest cities in India and 52 cities on the list of cities that are dirtiest, we will have to change this.”
Further speaking about the farmers in the state, Adityanath said that his government has paid Rs 6,200 cr for sugar cane farmers. He also said that farmers can sell their products where they get better price and its not mandatory for them to sell their products only to the government.
