Prime Minister Narendra Modi again reached his Lok Sabha constituency Varanasi on 23 December and presented schemes worth two thousand crore rupees for the development there. He laid the foundation stone of Amul plant in Karkhianv area on Varanasi-Jaunpur road. This is the Prime Minister’s second visit to Varanasi in the last 10 days. The villages falling within a radius of 50 km from the Amul plant will be connected with the milk revolution. Products like ice cream, cheese, butter, ghee and khoya made from milk will also be made in this plant. Looking at the example of Gujarat, it can be said without doubt that the income of many milk producing farmer families is going to increase due to the setting up of Amul plant. Along with this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the MP of Varanasi, gave the gift of 27 projects worth Rs 2100 crore to his parliamentary constituency.
Foundation stone of Kashi Vishwanath Corridor laid
Earlier on December 13, 2021, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor in the presence of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. It was constructed within 33 months at a cost of Rs 700 crore. Till some time ago it did not seem possible that one can have darshan of Ganga from Kashi Vishwanath temple. Earlier there was a very narrow road to reach the temple, but now there will be no problem even after reaching for the darshan of lakhs of devotees. The construction of Kashi Vishwanath Corridor has exposed the grandeur of the temple after 241 years. Earlier, between 1777 and 1780, Maharani Ahilyabai Holkar of the Maratha Empire had renovated the temple.
Resolve to make Purvanchal shine
In another brief visit to Varanasi on December 23, 2021, he made it clear that he is leaving no stone unturned to make the entire Purvanchal, along with his parliamentary constituency, gallop on the shining road of development. We know that the pace of development has naturally accelerated due to the presence of BJP-led governments at the Center and in Uttar Pradesh. Narendra Modi does not forget to mention this in every UP visit. They call this system a double engine government.
There is no doubt that development takes place in the system of same party or coalition governments at the center and the state, but at times it has also been seen that BJP has not got its benefit in the elections. We have seen this happening in Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand. But as far as Uttar Pradesh is concerned, all the political surveys that have come out so far make it clear that most of the people are happy with the work of Yogi Adityanath government and there is every possibility of BJP government coming back in the state.
There has been and may be ups and downs in political calculations, but if we look at the ground situation, it can be said without a doubt that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Aditya Nath have transformed Purvanchal. There was a time when newspapers were brimming with daily reports of deaths of children from encephalitis from Gorakhpur and the surrounding areas. Long broadcasts related to meningitis were also broadcast on TV news channels. Then it was also said that there was no scope for improvement in the situation. But the situation changed after the BJP government came to power in UP, this is the truth and is in front of everyone.
Purvanchal’s health has improved
In the Gorakhpur-Basti division, earlier only the BRD Medical College located in Gorakhpur used to look after the health of the people. But now it is not so. This medical college itself had become ill while handling the burden of such a large population of seven districts of Purvanchal. Now four medical colleges are running in Gorakhpur-Basti division. The foundation stone of one has been laid, while action plans are being prepared for the remaining two districts. Along with this, the gift of AIIMS has also been given to Gorakhpur. We can say that health services have increased manifold in Purvanchal.
Gorakhpur got world class AIIMS
Yogi Aditya Nath has to be given the credit for starting AIIMS in Gorakhpur. There was a demand for AIIMS there for almost two decades. There was also a big movement for this in 2004 under the leadership of Yogi Aditya Nath. As an MP, he vigorously raised the demand for improving health services in Purvanchal in Parliament and on 22 July 2016, the foundation stone of AIIMS was laid in Gorakhpur. Akhilesh Yadav was the Chief Minister of UP then. It is clear that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was interested in improving health services in eastern Uttar Pradesh, so he gave the fruits of the struggle of MP Yogi by giving AIIMS to Gorakhpur, keeping party discrimination away.
In March 2017, the political leadership changed in UP and Yogi became the CM and the expected pace of AIIMS construction took off. AIIMS has world class facilities, specialists for all types of treatment. These will be continuously improved. The benefit of Gorakhpur AIIMS will not only be available to the people of Purvanchal of UP, but people of Bihar, Jharkhand and neighboring country Nepal will also be able to take it. It is estimated that about seven crore people will be able to take advantage of this. In the coming time, the first AYUSH University of UP will also start in Gorakhpur, whose foundation has been laid by President Ram Nath Kovind on August 28, 2021.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Kushinagar, the Mahaparinirvana site of Lord Buddha on October 20, 2021 and dedicated the state’s third international airport to the nation. He also laid the foundation stone of the medical college. Five days later, on October 25, he went to Siddharthnagar, the playground of Buddha and inaugurated nine government medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh. This was his third visit to the Gorakhpur-Basti division, where he inaugurated three projects worth Rs 9,650 crore, including a fertilizer factory and AIIMS.
New speed of development Purvanchal Expressway
In mid-November 2021, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Purvanchal Expressway. Chief Minister Yogi Aditya Nath said that despite the Corona period of 19 months, the Purvanchal Expressway was ready in a record time of 36 months. In July 2018, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation stone of the expressway. Lucknow is directly connected to Purvanchal through this expressway. This has opened a direct road to progress for about eight crore UP residents.
On December 20, 2021, Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari and Chief Minister Yogi Aditya Nath presented three national highways and several development projects in Jaunpur’s Machlishahr at a cost of Rs 1538 crore. He promised that all the roads would be built like the roads of America.
Kashi’s ancient glory is returning
Especially if we talk about Varanasi, the ancient glory of Kashi is returning, as well as the holy city has also started fast on the path of modern development. The narrow streets of the city are also getting smart with their old look. Under the ‘Re-Development of Old Kashi Yojana’, along with shining the streets, hi-tech has also been done. Cultural paintings have been done on the walls of the streets. Elaborate arrangements have been made for sewer and water drainage. The wires have been underground. Under Smart City Project, Dashashwamedh Ward 16.22 Crore, Kal Bhairav Ward 16.24 Crore, Raj Mandir Ward 13.53 Crore, Jangambari Ward 12.65 Crore and Garhwasi Tola Ward 9.60 Crore from Varanasi Development Authority.
PM’s four Purvanchal tours in two months
Within the last two months, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has visited Purvanchal four times. During this, in the presence of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, he has inaugurated many big projects. The identity of Purvanchal will no longer be backwardness. In Gorakhpur, Kushinagar and Siddharthnagar, projects worth more than 12.50 thousand crore rupees have been recently inaugurated by the Central Government and the State Government for health, communication and prosperity. The foundation stone of schemes worth Rs 255 crore was also laid on this occasion.
In the 2017 assembly elections, 36 out of 41 assembly seats in seven districts of Gorakhpur-Basti division went to BJP. It is obvious that it will be interesting to see the 2022 elections to see what the mood of Purvanchal remains after the building of development for five years. Will BJP’s seats increase or decrease? By the way, BJP is fully hopeful that considering the speed at which development work has been done during its rule, this time the party will get more than 350 seats.
