The UP government has introduced Rs 7301.5 crores of supplementary budget in the Assembly. In the budget, it has given priority to Dalits, students, and farmers.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that the state government will build houses on the land seized from the mafia and give it to the Dalits and the poor.
Earlier in February this year, Yogi told the Legislative Council that during his government tenure the state had liberated nearly 67,000 acres from the land mafia. The UP CM announced to give priority to develop playgrounds on these lands.
Yogi was incensed that some (opposition leaders) were foolishly supporting the Taliban and that such people were talking about women’s welfare. He wanted to expose them before everyone.
Mr Yogi said that 46% of women leaders got elected in Panchayat elections and 56% women in Block President elections.
He also announced giving tablets or smartphones to students to utilize digital resources. And he assured to provide allowance to the students to prepare for at least three competitive exams.
The Uttar Pradesh CM said that their government has spent more than one lakh crore in the past 4 years to clear the arrears of Sugarcane farmers.
