Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday said the state which was earlier known for lawlessness and nepotism is now known for development works.
“UP was earlier known for nepotism, chaos but today centre and state governments are developing it,” said CM.
CM was speaking after the renaming of Mughalsarai junction as Deen Dayal Upadhyay station.
BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday inaugurated new Deen Dayal Upadhyaya railway station in the presence of Union Minister Piyush Goyal and CM Yogi Adityanath.

Stating that the station has got a "new identity" with its renaming, the chief minister said this was only possible as there were BJP governments in power both at the Centre and the state.
Upadhyaya was found dead in mysterious circumstances near the Mughalsarai station in February 1968. The RSS had raised demand to rename the station ever since. Mughalsarai is also the birthplace of former prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.
