New Delhi: Claiming the state has remained riot-free since 2017, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, while patting his own back, today said his tenure was “memorable”, which was devoted to good governance and people.
Addressing a press conference on the occasion of completion of his four-and-a-half-year term in the office, Adityanath said his government had struck at the root of the mafia and paved the way for a safer and secure state.

Govt Booklet of lies
The 16-page booklet published by the BJP government is 16 aane lies. It seems the BJP government in UP has published a textbook of ‘international training centre for lies’. — Akhilesh Yadav, Samajwadi party chief
“We have put criminals in jail, confiscated their properties and not a single communal riot has taken place in Uttar Pradesh in the past four and a half years. Our priority was security for women and we set up the Anti-Romeo squad, pink booths for women and launched the third phase of ‘Mission Shakti’ to empower women on all fronts,” the CM said.
Adityanath said while previous governments built houses for themselves, his government built houses for the poor. “We have given a sense of stability to the state administration, unlike previous government which had turned transfers into an industry. We encouraged officers to work better and be more responsive toward the public,” he said. Claiming his government gave jobs to 4.5 lakh youths, the CM said a transparent system for doing business in the state was set up, which led to improvement in rankings and investments started pouring in.
