Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, gave instructions to create a “Uttar Pradesh State Capital Region” on Friday, modelling it after the Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR).
On Friday, according to an official statement, Adityanath hosted a review meeting of the Housing and Urban Planning Department, Housing Development Council, and all urban development authorities via video conference at his official house.
Modern urban facilities are now available in Lucknow, the state capital, thanks to ongoing, coordinated efforts. The chief minister remarked at the gathering that people from other cities want to come here and settle permanently.
There are accusations of unplanned growth occasionally as the pressure of population grows in the neighbouring districts as well. He suggested that the Uttar Pradesh State Capital Region be created in the same manner as the National Capital Region (NCR) in order to take future demands into consideration.
In this regard, Lucknow and the adjacent districts of Unnao, Sitapur, Rae Bareli, Barabanki, Kanpur Nagar, and Kanpur Dehat may be included in the SCR, as requested by Adityanath.
A thorough action plan should be provided as soon as possible after considering all the factors, the chief minister added.
According to him, when choosing development projects, authorities should examine the circumstances that will exist in 50 years, and they should also think about managing their projects’ finances themselves.
Yogi declared that the “zero tolerance” policy against the land mafia will remain in place and ordered that the strongest measures be implemented in response to any complaints of illicit land possession, whether made by the government or by a private party.
He declared that Uttar Pradesh would not stand for anyone using force to take control of impoverished people’s land.
Additionally, he urged quick progress on the action plan to transform Ayodhya into a solar city because it would give the city a distinctive identity on a worldwide scale.
Adityanath remarked that Ayodhya will send a powerful message of energy conservation to the entire world.
