It chamber also said that as the BJP now is in power in both Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, coordination between both states should be better for the better deal to the Bundelkhand areas, which have suffered due to water scarcity. “Faced with high expectations created by a massive mandate given to the BJP, the incoming CM of Uttar Pradesh has to meet immediate challenges of ensuring much better electricity supply and find lasting solutions for arrears of sugarcane farmers,” it added.
