In the presence of all Chief Ministers in the Niti Aayog meeting in Delhi on Sunday and in front of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath kept many suggestions and demands.
The Chief Minister Yogi suggested that how many people are below the poverty line under poverty eradication program should be estimated at every 5 years. He suggested that the Task Force created for identifying BPL families should correct their figures every 5 years so that government schemes can be implemented in the same manner accordingly. There is no time limit set for this.
The most preferred program for PM Modi, the Yogi demanded to increase the money from Center for Clean India. Now the center government gives 60 percent of the money for this program and the state governments have to spend 40 percent more money. The Yogi suggested that it should be 75 and 25 consecutive. That is to give three-fourths of the money by the central government and one-fourth of the money by the state government.
Yogi suggested that under the Scil India program, outsourcing should be reduced and instead it should be given to the professors in school to counsel him for the children. He said that hiring an outside agency for counseling is spending a lot more.
UP Chief Minister Yogi said that out of 59,000 villages in Uttar Pradesh, 3500 thousand villages have been released from open defecation in the open. He claimed that Uttar Pradesh will completely eliminate the defecation by October 2018.
Under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, the Chief Minister demanded 10 thousand crores of dues to the Uttar Pradesh government, and he also demanded Rs. Two thousand crores for Scheduled Caste and Tribal Scholarship. For the development of Purvanchal and Bundelkhand, a package of Rs. 15000 crores was sought. Yogi said that both of these areas are far behind from other places in UP and there is a dire need to bring them forward. Under Solar India Mission, the Yogi has demanded 22000 solar pumps. So far, UP has got 10,000 solar pumps.
In the Niti Aayog’s meeting, the Chief Minister said that he wants to complete the 86,000-kilometer stretch of roads in Uttar Pradesh completely. But he demanded that there are 3000 km of it from the National Highway and the central government should give the expenditure to repair them. At the same time, the Chief Minister explained in detail that the state government is fast prepared for the implementation of GST. 77% merchants have been registered to implement the GST and the rest of the work will be completed by May.
