Home page of the official website Uttar Pradesh government became an instant hit moment after Prime Minister Narendra Modi today mocked at Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, saying that his own portal admits that “Life in Uttar Pradesh is short and uncertain”.

Female expects to less than 55 years and the under-fire mortality rate is as high as 141 per thousands.”

It went on to compare life in UP to Sahara region of Africa. “In these respect, Uttar Pradesh resembles Saharan Africa for with 53 years of life expectancy and 160 under five mortality rate(sic)”, the article said. “Among all major Indian states, Uttar Prdesh has the highest under five mortality rate, the second highest crude death rate and the third lowest life expectancy figure.

The number of maternal deaths per 100,000 live birth in the state estimated to be 931 in the mid 1980s,” it said. Talking about the girl’s mortality rate, the article said if a girl is born in Kerala she can expect to live 20 years longer than if she is born in Uttar Pradesh.

“The probability that she will die before the age of one is more than six times as high in Uttar Pradesh than in Kerala. According to the recent National Family Health survey, Uttar Pradesh comes second to Bihar among the major Indian states in terms of the incidence of under nutrition among children below the age of five. This corroborates as well as explains to a large extent the lower possibility of child survival in Uttar Pradesh,” it said.
