PM Modi praises Yogi Adityanath : An illusion or reality check

Lucknow, July 15 : As Prime Minister Narendra Modi  is busy  inaugurating new projects in Uttar Pradesh and praising chief minister Yogi Adityanath while accusing former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav for “neglecting” people, the people of the state are complaining about poor condition of roads with potholes  that pose threat to their lives.

In a reality check in Uttar Pradesh, roads around Lucknow’s Lalbagh, Lucknow City railway station and other areas are riddled with potholes.

Locals complain that “These are very dangerous, especially when it rains. It gets waterlogged, leading to accidents. We risk our lives everyday.”

Chief Minister Adityanath had promised pothole-free roads by June 15, 2017  and said action will be taken against the departments that fail to meet the deadline.

Interestingly, both the PWD and Irrigation department, which have fared badly, are headed by Keshav Prasad Maurya. Maurya however has assured that roads will be fixed soon.

Therefore, Adityanath government have failed in delivering his first big ticket promise after coming to power — pothole-free roads by June 15, 2017.

On the contrary, the Prime Minister  praised chief minister Yogi Adityanath, stating that his government has changed the very perception of Uttar Pradesh. “Yogiji has been able to curb the crime rate and corruption in Uttar Pradesh. He has contributed immensely to the state’s development,” he said.

Roads in Gorakhpur is filled with potholes, locals said, “Government had promised that all potholes would be filled by 15 June 2017 but nothing has been done till today. Potholes have claimed many lives. Government is only talking about religion and nothing else.”

 Keshav Prasad Maurya has reportedly told the Public Works Department (PWD) to erect saffron-coloured boards, displaying the slogan ‘sarkar ka sankalp, sadkon ka ho kayakalp’ (the goverrnment’s pledge is to transform roads), along with pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, chief minister Yogi Yogi Adityanath and deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya, on the roads in UP, that have been declared pothole-free pothole-free by the department.
