Aligarh (Uttar Pradesh) [India], April 22 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday praised Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for bringing development to the state and said that Uttar Pradesh is going to become a big hub of "self-reliant India and self-reliant Army."
Addressing a public rally in Aligarh, PM Modi said, "Because of BJP, now our Uttar Pradesh is going to become a big hub of self-reliant India and self-reliant Army. I want to open the eyes of those people who keep identifying Yogi ji only with bulldozers."
He further said that CM Yogi's mission of 'One District, One Product' is creating new respect in the entire country.
"Whatever industrial development did not happen in Uttar Pradesh after independence, it happened during the period of Yogi ji alone. His mission of One District, One Product is creating new respect in the entire country. You talked about bulldozers, if someone has taken the development to new heights, Yogi ji's government has taken it and as an MP from Kashi, he is also my Chief Minister. I feel proud that I have such colleagues," he added.
Yogi Adityanath was also present at the event along with other BJP leaders.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also mentioned the increase of the Haj quota by Saudi Arabia and said that upon his request to the Crown Prince the Haj quota was increased adding that the visa process has also been made seamless for the Muslim pilgrims to Saudi Arabia.
"Earlier, due to less Haj quota, there used to be a lot of fighting and bribery was also prevalent there and only the influential people would get the chance to go to Haj. I had requested the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia to increase the Haj quota for our Muslim brothers and sisters in India. Today, not only has India's Haj quota increased but visa rules have also been made easier. The government took a very important decision," PM Modi said.
