Ghaziabad, Nov 2: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that before 2017, the youth of Uttar Pradesh used to hesitate in calling themselves from being the resident of the state, festivals could not be completed peacefully and instead of solving the problem the government had become the problem itself.

Addressing the convocation ceremony held on the occasion of completion of 25 years of the Krishna Institute of Engineering and Technology (KIET) in Ghaziabad, the CM said that prior to 2014, a sense of discontent prevailed among the citizens of the country against the system, agitations were taking place across the nation, disorder, anarchy and distrust against the government had become the identity of India.
He said that the nation underwent a transformation after Prime Minister Narendra Modi assumed power. “Currently, India is witnessing new heights of development, and its 140 crore citizens hold their leadership in high regard, extending full respect and trust,” he said.

Yogi said that today UP stands as one of the leading states in the country in terms of ease of doing business. “The state’s economy, which was once ranked eighth or tenth, is now in the race to become number one and two. This transformation represents the emergence of a new UP of new India,” he said.
He said that there was a time when investors were reluctant to invest in the state and some who had previously invested were departing. “However, in just six and a half years, UP has garnered investment proposals worth Rs 38 lakh crore through the Global Investors Summit held early this year which is expected to create job opportunities for 1.10 crore youth across the state,” he said.

The CM said, “Prior to 2017, the youth from the state were reluctant to identify themselves as residents of UP. Festivals could not be completed peacefully. Rather than resolving the issues at hand, the government itself had become the problem. Presently, no citizen of UP is facing any identity crisis, even those who are not from the state call themselves from UP.”

Highlighting the growing importance of drone technology in agriculture and various other fields, he also mentioned the significance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in aiding various tasks. “In light of these advancements, there is a need to introduce new courses,” he said.
Yogi emphasized that technology is proving its effectiveness across multiple facets of life, including combating corruption. “However, we have to keep in mind that technology should be driven by humans. Man should not become its slave,” he said.

He said, “The Programme of PM Gati Shakti Mission has been taken forward under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi for infrastructure development in the entire country. On this one platform, we can get all types of NoC.”
The CM extended his congratulations to the students and teachers of the institute for the remarkable 25-year journey of KIET. “In view of the abundant potential of UP in the pharma sector, the state government is taking proactive measures to establish a Pharma Park,” he said.
