Gorakhpur: New Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath has his tasks cut out for this region. He had proposed or backed as many as ten major projects as a representative of the area in the Lok Sabha. He has to undertake these schemes in right earnest if he has to live up to expectations of the people of the area he hails from.
He had an excuse earlier that the state is ruled by another party and, therefore, he cannot do much in this regard. With his appointment as the political head of the state he has no cover left now.
Encephalitis, a brain disease, has affected a large part of the district. Many people have died for lack of proper treatment. Yogi has to take effective measures to control the disease or to eliminate it, if possible.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had last year launched two projects but none of these has made any headway. Revival of the closed fertilizer factory was one of them. It has been lying closed for more than 25 years.
The other proposal was to set up an All India Institute of Medical Sciences-like hospital. Yogi has to take necessary measures for speedy execution of these schemes.
