Asserting that over the past decade, the country has ascended from being the 11th largest economy to the 5th, Yogi said, “There is no doubt that India, under Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, will ascend to the position of the third largest economy in the world. This is ‘Modi ji ki guarantee’ and UP firmly believes in it.”

He said, “Aligned with this vision, UP has set an ambitious goal of becoming a one trillion dollar economy. To achieve this, the state is focusing on enhancing skill development, scaling up industries, and accelerating growth.”

Yogi said, “It is our collective fortune that we find ourselves witnessing and participating in this historic era as India enters its ‘Amrit Kaal’. We are privileged to have the able guidance and leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the ‘Saarathi’ (charioteer) of India’s ‘Amrit Kaal’.”

Reflecting on the state’s development journey, he noted a significant shift from the past, where UP was perceived with apprehension before 2014 and 2017. “Today, however, the state has embraced its talent and unlimited potential, becoming synonymous with security, good governance, and development,” he said.

Yogi emphasised that UP now boasts excellent connectivity through water, land, and air.
