Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath wants Niti Aayog to prepare a plan for the economic transformation of every district in his state. CM has asked for plan similar to the Centre's aspirational districts programme that aims to improve the socio-economic status of 117 districts from across 28 states.
Attending a meeting with Niti Aayog officials in Lucknow, Yogi said that his government`s intention, from the very beginning, was to turn UP to 'Uttam Pradesh' and it welcomed every suggestion made by the Aayog officials.
As far as social development is concerned, the states are judged on 49 parameters, including human development index, health and nutrition, agriculture, water resources, financial inclusion, skill development and infrastructure. There are eight districts in the state like Chitrakoot, Fatehpur, Bahraich, Shravasti, Balrampur, Siddhartha Nagar, Chandauli, and Sonbhadra, which are a part of the programme.
"The state government will provide all possible help for the same. Once a plan is made, it will be implemented in a time-bound manner," Yogi said.
Niti Aayog, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Amitabh Kant said his organisation wanted the aspirational districts of Uttar Pradesh to be recognised as top among the 115 districts on all major parameters.
Aayog members appreciated Adityanath's interest in the programme and expressed hope that all the aspirational districts from UP would scale up to the top of every key parameter in the next 3-4 months. They also suggested that the District Magistrates of the aspirational districts share with them the good work done in their areas.
