He said the ‘Make in India’ will benefit entrepreneurs of other countries while his slogan of ‘Make in UP’ will directly benefit the people of the state.The CM said India is a big market but Uttar Pradesh with its 22 crore population is no small market either.
He spoke of the leather goods of Agra, Kanpur and also the carpet industry of Bhadohi. The CM spoke of Padamshree Irshad Mirza whose leather items under the brand name of ‘Red Tape’ are famous all over. Akhilesh Yadav said his government was working for the all round development of all sections of society. He spoke of the Samajwadi Ambulance Service and also the Samawadi Pension Yojana. On the law and order front, the CM said high-tech police control rooms were being set up and steps were underway to ensure that the police reached the scene of crime within 10 to 15 minutes.
He said the SP government had always formulated policies to benefit the farmers, small traders and industrialists and called upon the officers to create a more conducive environment for the traders.
The CM said the country and UP made strides, but barring a few African countries, other nations were way ahead. The industrialists should gauge and understand this changing environment and work.
