In his first Lok Sabha address after taking over as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Gorakhpur MP Yogi Adityanath said that Narendra Modi has become a worldwide icon for the work he has done as Prime Minister. Adityanath said that Indian economy has developed many folds under PM Modi’s rule. The UP CM said that Central Government has worked under Modi with the vision of ‘Sabka Sath Sabka Vikaas.’
Adityanath also made MPs laugh, drawing a combination, Adityanath said that he is one year elder to former CM Akhilesh Yadav, while a year younger than Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi. “I am one year younger than Rahul Gandhi, and a year elder to Akhilesh Yadav,” Adityanath said. The UP CM added that Central government has worked for all sections of society without any discrimination. He further thanked Finance Minister for “breathing new life into country’s economy.”
“I will be committed to the responsibility given to me by party and our leader, I will invite you all to see the changes there, you see a lot of things are going to shut there,” Adityanath said
Further assuring PM Narendra Modi’s Sabka Sath Sabka Vikaas vision for the state, Adityanath said: “My govt will be for everyone, not specifically for any caste or community.” Slamming his opponents, Adityanath said that there have been no communal riots in his Lok Sabha constituency for past 15 years and he will ensure the same for the state as well.
