We set a goal and created a vision document. Everyone will see that we will take the Prime Minister’s vision of rural development religiously. Women and rural people have supported us and voted for us. They have taken the BJP from zero to the heights it is today. So we are engaged in their service. We will work to improve their lives, ”the minister added.
“However, I will share the details about this during Navratri,” he added.
In Akhilesh Yadav’s repeated attacks on the Yogi government over leaked exam question papers in the state, Deputy Chief Minister SP Pradhan was quick to take over. “There is no need to worry about those who forcibly seize property and those who take advantage of the fraud. There are detailed mentions of such gangs in the pages of history and it will be exposed in front of everyone. And those who are tweeting, even the links of this gang with their group will be revealed, ”said Maurya.
