LUCKNOW: Giving full credit to PM Modi-led central government in tiding over the corona crisis, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath on Sunday said that the schemes started by the Centre six years ago came to the rescue when they were needed most during this pandemic. “Today when the country is struggling with corona, we have been able to tackle it as the preparation started six years ago,” Yogi said.
He cited the example of opening of Jan Dhan accounts, Swacch Bharat Mission , Ujjwala Scheme aimed to provide free gas connections, and Saubhagya scheme of free electricity connection which, Yogi said, helped the state government provide relief to the people hit by the Corona-induced lockdown.
Yogi said that UP has benefited the most by the Central scheme as well as the Centre relief package. “We are completely satisfied with the PM relief package,” he said. He also took a swipe at the Congress saying that scores of lives would have been in danger had the state government went by the list of vehicles by an opposition party.
