Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath recently claimed that he is quite optimistic that Aligarh would soon be adding more feathers to its cap. Known for its lock industry, the city has a bright future in terms of producing high-quality arms for state defence as well as becoming a major logistics & transport hub.
Adityanath was addressing “Prabuddhjan Sammellans” (meetings of intellectuals) in Aligarh and Firozabad. He laid foundation stone and inaugurated government schemes worth ₹96.55 crore in Aligarh and ₹269 crore in Firozabad.
“I am here to appeal to intellectuals. They have seen the huge development of the double engine regime. Success in local bodies’ election will certainly ensure enhancement of infrastructure development,” he said.
“Once the Jewar International Airport becomes fully functional, Aligarh will become a hub for logistics and transport. The district was lucky to have personalities like Babu Kalyan Singh and Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh and now developing Aligarh as a “smart city” will realise their dreams,” Yogi Adityanath said.
“Uttar Pradesh is moving on a new path of growth. It has changed to keep pace with changing India in the last eight years under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The double engine government has left no room for crime and criminals in Uttar Pradesh,” the chief minister said.
