Lucknow: The newly elected Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath will head first Cabinet meeting of Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday April 4 at 5 PM. According to the sources, CM Yogi Adityanath is likely to discuss major issues in the BJP’s poll manifesto such as loan waiver of farmers. The Cabinet meeting of Uttar Pradesh government will be closely observed by the public of the state as PM Narendra Modi made a promise during the Assembly Elections campaigns of Uttar Pardesh, loan waiver of farmers being one of them.
Siddharth Nath Singh, state Health Minister of Uttar Pradesh told reporters on April 2 that, “The cabinet meeting will be held in the evening on April 4”. In the rallies during UP elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised to the people of state that if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is elected to power in Uttar Pradesh, the party would waive off the loans of all farmers of the state in the first Cabinet meeting of the Uttar Pradesh government.
Since, Yogi Adityanath took oath as the CM of Uttar Pradesh there had been no such discussion on the loan waiver of farmers from the UP government and as a result, other parties had been blaming the BJP of making such false promises to the people of state. Upon which, the newly elected government of Uttar Pradesh had said that there’s a delay in the Cabinet meeting as the government was projecting out a suitable plan for loan waiver and didn’t desire to take any decision in a hurry.
Major discussions CM Yogi Adityanath may take up:
Strong Law and Order
From several years, there has been a big issue of law and order in Uttar Pradesh and many other parties had previously blamed government of Samajwadi Party led by Akhilesh Yadav of not taking proper care of the law and order in Uttar pradesh.
