‘From Uttam Pradesh to Udhyam Pradesh’: CM Adityanath Underscores UP’s Evolution at Groundbreaking Ceremony

4 min read


Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday said the state has transformed from “Uttam Pradesh” to “Udhyam Pradesh” and the continued support of entrepreneurs and investors would help it achieve the goals of becoming a trillion-dollar economy and the growth engine of “Viksit Bharat”. He also praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for guiding the state’s progress.

The chief minister was addressing a gathering at the groundbreaking ceremony in Lucknow on Monday for investment proposals received during the UP Global Investors Summit 2023 held in February last year. PM Modi was also present at the event.

“In 2018, during the first Investors Summit, the Prime Minister had said here in Lucknow that UP has values and virtues but in these changing times, value addition is required. Not only in work culture or business culture but UP’s strength in every area requires value addition. Today, six years later, I am delighted to say that by assimilating these words of the PM, Uttar Pradesh has framed its policies, as a result of which within six years, the fourth edition of this groundbreaking ceremony is being organised,” the CM added.

Yogi Adityanath also stated that UP signifies “Unlimited Potential”. “The state neither lacks ‘manpower’ nor ‘willpower,’” he asserted.

As the second-largest economy of the country, UP is contributing 9.2% to the Indian economy, said the CM. “This land is blessed by saints and seers, it is also the land of the sacred rivers like Ganga, Yamuna, and Sarayu. It is a land of virtue as well as ‘enterprise and entrepreneurship’. Today, Uttar Pradesh is on the path to transforming India’s labour force into an economic powerhouse,” he said, while emphasising UP’s association with “Shri Ram, Gopeshwar Shri Krishna, and Baba Vishwanath”.

The CM also highlighted the success of the Global Investors Summit 2023 and said that UP has tremendous potential and the investment worth Rs 10,000 crore as part of the Groundbreaking Ceremony 4.0 is an example of that. “February 19 marks a celebration as these investment proposals are being translated into reality. Today, the ‘bhoomi pujan’ of projects worth more than Rs 10 lakh crore is going to be completed with the blessings of the Prime Minister,” he added.

The chief minister said that Uttar Pradesh now boasts excellent connectivity through water, land, and air. He attributed the increased investor interest in the state to initiatives such as the Ease of Doing Business framework, the Nivesh Mitra and Nivesh Sarathi portals, the Incentive Monitoring System, and the state’s investment-friendly policies. He underscored the importance of accountability and transparency for every individual involved.

The chief minister stated that UP respects every investor. “Now people have started saying that Surakshit Nivesh Matlab Uttar Pradesh (safe investment means Uttar Pradesh),” he said.

The CM expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for gracing the state with his presence to inaugurate the fourth edition of the groundbreaking ceremony. He also extended a warm welcome to the investors and entrepreneurs gathered at the event.

He said over the past decade, the country had ascended from being the 11th-largest economy to the 5th. “There is no doubt that India, under Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, will ascend to the position of the third-largest economy in the world. This is ‘Modi ji ki guarantee’ and Uttar Pradesh firmly believes in it,” he said.

Yogi Adityanath also praised PM Modi for the historic consecration of Lord Ram Lalla in Ayodhya and inaugurating the first Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi this year. “We are grateful that we are a witness to this historic era as India enters its Amrit Kaal. We are privileged to have the able guidance and leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the saarathi (charioteer) of India’s Amrit Kaal, “he added.

Along with PM Modi, governor Anandiben Patel, defence minister Rajnath Singh, deputy chief ministers Keshav Prasad Maurya and Brajesh Pathak, assembly speaker Satish Mahana, legislative council chairman Kunwar Manvendra Singh, BJP state president Chaudhary Bhupendra Singh, ambassadors of various countries, high commissioners, union cabinet ministers, government and administration officials, eminent investors, and entrepreneurs were present at the event.
