Hours before Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Amethi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday slammed Congress, SP and BSP for ignoring development in UP during their regime in India's most populous state.

He also talked about the recent attacks on India “Terror attacks happened earlier too. But surgical strikes in Myanmar and after Uri showed that this is a new India. Northeast is peaceful now”

“Kumbh is becoming more and more successful. Since independence, no leader paid attention to Kumbh. But beliefs should always be respected. Under PM’s leadership, Kumbh was brought under Swachh Bharat. He is the first PM to wash the feet of sanitation workers. Swachh Bharat has now been extended to Pakistan where terror camps are being eliminated”, Uttar Pradesh chief minister said.

Praising PM Modi for his works, UP CM Yogi Adityanath said, "Modi hai to mumkin hai". 73,000 farmers in Amethi and 1.24 lakh farmers in Raebareli benefitted from Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) scheme launched by PM Modi from Gorakhpur.

PM Modi has ensured that money is transferred directly to bank accounts of beneficiaries. Amethi was a VIP area, but cooking gas was not made available to women here

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also slammed the opposition party and said that Congress had done nothing for the region. Sitharaman reads out Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement.

Smriti Irani listed out the achievements of NDA Government and said 1.25 lakh people benefitted from Ayushman Bharat scheme. More than 2.11 lakh women in Amethi got ‘izzat ghar’ (toilets).

She also raised the issue of a local Amethi woman who lost her son in a foreign land. She said the woman found help from BJP but not from local MP. She says that in the last five years, despite losing Amethi, the BJP has continued to help Amethi.

PM Modi clapped as Smriti Irani said that present on stage is India’s woman defence minister N Sitharaman despite the fact that the “Amethi MP” hurled abuses at her.
