Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav, in a press conference in Fatehpur on Thursday praised PM Modi’s foreign visits and his efforts to bring investment and boost development.

Yadav, who had himself been on a foreign trip recently stressed, “Everyone wants investment, be it in the country or in the state”.

The Chief Minister also said that people of the country are looking forward with hope towards the central government for basic facilities.

On losses suffered by state’s farmers due to untimely rains and hailstorm, Yadav said his government was providing maximum help and compensation to them.

However, he has claimed that the state is yet to get any help from the central government. He further added more help will be extended towards the farmers when the centre provides its share.

Taking strong exception to illegal mining on the banks of river Yamuna, the Chief Minister has ordered a probe and also warned that stern action will be taken against the perpetrators.

He also revealed that a new bridge will be constructed at Kishunpur on Yamuna bank.
