The newly elected Uttar Pradesh government headed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in his first Cabinet meeting today made a crucial decision to give a massive boost to job creation. This would be achieved by formulating a new industrial policy in order to attract more business investment in the state. The Adityanath cabinet has appointed a five-member group of ministers led by Deputy CM Dinesh Sharma to tap the massive opportunities here. As per senior ministers Siddharth Nath Singh and Srikant Sharma, the five-member team will be studying the industrial policies of other states to formulate a comprehensive strategy in UP to uplift investment. They have not cited any central government policy in this regard, but Adityanath has said that he will definitely look for solutions in the schemes and policies powered by PM Narendra Modi to kick-start the UP economy.
After their 90 minutes long cabinet meeting held with CM Adityanath, the ministers informed reporters that the team is likely to visit other states including Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh to study their policies and will later prepare their own strategy to improve investment through single window systems.
