Ahead of polls, UP launches slew of projects


In the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav launched a slew of projects and laid the foundation for several others on Monday.

The projects include the North-South Corridor Depot of Lucknow Metro Rail, 1,820 government tubewells, strengthening of and repairs to 27 State roads, an inner ring road scheme for Agra and beautification of Tajganj, and 35 sports infrastructure projects.

At a function to launch the tubewells and begin work on 27 roads, the inner ring road and Tajganj development, Mr. Yadav derided the attempts by some belonging to the neighbouring States to undermine the importance of the Taj Mahal. “Many people and tourists don’t know that the Taj Mahal is in Uttar Pradesh.” It was part of a conspiracy by some who never wanted that the Taj publicised as a tourist destination.
