Yogi Adityanath govt gives out Rs 10 crore to this institute

CM Yogi Adityanath's Rs 3,84,659 crore maiden Budget was 11 per cent more than the previous Akhilesh Yadav's government.

Finance minister Rajesh Agarwal said that land was being purchased for the Poorvanchal Expressway, but was silent on the issue of funds. It is being set up by the central government under the public-private partnership (PPP) model a couple of years ago.

While presenting the budget, Agarwal reiterated the state government's commitment towards the farmers and the marginalised sections of the society.

Farmers: Yogi Adityanath has allotted a special provision of Rs 36,000 crore as the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister had promised at the time of getting elected that he would work for farm loan waiver, it was a challenge with it just being 100 days of Yogi's government.

Though a balance has sought to be made in allocation of budget between rural and urban areas of the state the budget has not paid much attention on any concrete plan to speed up infrastructural activities and industrial development to achieve an integrated growth. The state government also brought in a package for potato growers and ensured payment of cane dues worth Rs 22,682 crore.
