Initiatives taken by Yogi Government:

The Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) painted Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state of India, saffron by a historic win in the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly election 2017 which were held in seven phases from 11th February to 8th March, 2017.

Aditya Nath is a mahant at the Gorakhnath Mathh. He is alluded as being the furious leader of the Bharatiya Janta Party. He became the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh on 26th March, 2017. He has been elected to the Parliament for five consecutive terms i.e. 1998,1999,2004,2009 and 2014. Adityanath has been BJP’s most controversial leader. He known as furious man for his affiliation with the Hindutva ideology. He showed his strength to the senior leaders of BJP by organizing a Vishwa Hindu Mahasammelan and spreading across the message that it is impossible to ignore a firebrand leader like the current Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.

On 19th March, the Bharatiya Janta Paty (BJP) had a historic win in the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly as the party won 325 seats of the 425 assembly seats along with its allies. The Uttar Pradesh Government marked its successful functioning of hundred days by releasing a booklet titled “100 din vishwas ke” on June 27th, 2017. The booklet highlights the achievements of the Uttar Pradesh Government. The achievements of the Uttar Pradesh government enlisted in its booklet “100 din vishwas ke” are as follows –

  • The BJP lead state government stirred up a storm with its crackdown on illegal and mechanized slaughterhouse, the state of Uttar Pradesh which is one of the most populous state witnessed strike of thousands of meat sellers against U.P. Government’s act of meat crakdown.

  • Metro in Gorakhpur- In order to benefit the people of his Lok Sabha constituency, Gorakhpur, the Chief Minister Adityanath announced Metro train projects for Gorakhpur and Jhansi.

Shortcomings of Yogi Government :

Since every coin has two sides. Though the newly elected Yogi Government has initiated several measures and schemes for the benefit of the people of Uttar Pradesh. But the challenges before the Bharatiya Janta Party led Uttar Pradesh government are innumerable. There comes a huge gap between planning and making laws to the their execution. The ground reality differs from what we see on papers. Yogi Government has been criticized by the opposition for not full filling its promises. The challenges before the Yogi Government are as follows-

  • The 15th June deadline of making the roads of Delhi pot-holes free has been missed and the government has itself admitted to having made only 65% of the roads of Uttar Pradesh potholes free.

  • Amidst the farm loan wavier, the BJP led Uttar Pradesh government is facing the challenge of implementation of 7th pay commission which would require 34,000 crore rupees.

  • The Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) had promised in its election manifesto that it would provide laptops to students, which is now seen as another challenge for the government. Yet no date has been announced by the Yogi Government to launch this scheme.

  • Innumerable instances of law and order problems in the state of Uttar Pradesh is yet another challenge for Yogi Adityanath’s government, since they already say that they have inherited “Jungle Raj” from the former S.P. government.

  • The recent clashes between people of various communities and violence in the name of cow protection along-with violence pertaining to the Hindutva ideology adds to the shortcomings of the Yogi Government. Read Elections News
