The day-long conclave will discuss a wide range of issues including achievements of Yogi Adityanath government in last one year, prospects of ruling BJP and other political parties in 2019 general elections, solution to the vexed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute, the controversy over police encounters in the state etc.
If political observers are to be believed, last one year has been a mixed bag for the Yogi Adityanath government. On one hand, the Yogi government has been praised for steps like facilitating the payment of dues of sugarcane farmers in the state to a large extent, formation of anti-Romeo squads to check incidents of eve-teasing against girls, instilling a sense of fear among criminals operating in the state etc., the state government has faced criticism for allegedly encouraging fake police encounters and vitiating the atmosphere in the state by allegedly turning a blind eye to incidents like Kasganj violence.
On 16th February 2018, Yogi Adityanath government presented its second full-fledged budget announcing new schemes worth Rs 14,341 crore. However, the opposition accused the government of once again shying away from its promise of providing free laptops and data package to college-going students that the BJP had made in its Sankalp Patra in the run up to the 2017 Assembly elections.
However, the UP chief minister rejected the criticism saying instead of distributing free laptops, the government will rather focus on better education through a changed syllabus.
The opposition also attacked the government for not fulfilling the promise of generating 14 lakh jobs every year.
All these issues are likely to be discussed threadbare in the India TV Samvaad Uttar Pradesh in Lucknow on March 13.
