Yogi Adityanath said that his government did not see any law and order problem when general elections in 80 seats were held earlier this year.
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday said that his administration has improved the law and order of the state in the last two and half years since his government came to power in March 2017. Speaking to CNN News 18, the Uttar Pradesh CM said that his administration did not have any law and order problem when general elections in 80 seats were held earlier this year.
During the interview, Adityanath added that as compared to Uttar Pradesh, the state of West Bengal saw a number of riots during elections that led to the death of a number of people.
When he was asked about incidents like the one that took place in Unnao, the CM said that it was nowhere related to the law and order situation of the state. He added that incidents like the one in Unnao, show the mindset of individuals and that the BJP took the necessary step when the incident came to light.

Speaking about the current economic slowdown in the country, the chief minister expressed confidence that Uttar Pradesh won’t be affected by the crisis.

The chief minister while speaking about the recent reports of encephalitis in the state, expressed confidence that his government would be able to eradicate the disease from the state. The CM further stressed that when he was the MP from Gorakhpur, it was he who first raised it and took the fight against the disease from the streets to the Parliament of India.
