- It's only BJP which can think about interest of 24-crore people of Uttar Pradesh: Goyal
Union Minister Piyush Goyal on Wednesday (February 16) took a swipe at the Samajwadi Party (SP) saying the policy of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) cannot be understood by a party that thinks "for a family only".
At a press conference in Lucknow yesterday, he alleged the Samajwadi party ran a government of goons, mafias and criminals and it is only the BJP which can think about the interest of the 24-crore people of the state.
Goyal said the Yogi Adityanath government has done a remarkable job in all fields, including agriculture, industry, infrastructure, health and education, and asserted that Uttar Pradesh will leave a mark as a "golden state".
However, "our policies cannot be understood by the party which only thinks for its family", the Union minister said.
Goyal lauded the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Centre and of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in the state.
He asserted that Adityanath has not only established the rule of law and brought massive investment in Uttar Pradesh but also provided employment to lakhs of youth.
The entire country will remember the contribution of the Adityanath government in creating an environment of industrial development, Goyal said and claimed that investment of more than Rs 3 lakh crore has come in the state in the last five years.
