Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday said that Basti, a city of great historical and mythological importance, was neglected by the state in the past during the governments led by opposition parties.
“Previous governments divided people and created rifts in the society in the name of caste and religion. But today development is happening fast in the double engine government.
“Today Basti has its own medical college named after Maharishi Vashishtha, which was unimaginable six years ago,” Adityanath said in a statement.
The good governance of district Basti is going to pave the way for more prosperity by feeding the ‘lotus’ of development at every booth in the dear public body elections. Thank you residents of Basti! pic.twitter.com/H4JCiBfeDM
