IANS  |  Lucknow 

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav launched the new weekly at Kanaura village on the outskirts of Lucknow.

"The paper will carry stories from villages and act as a bridge between the government and villagers, informing them about larger schemes that have been launched for their welfare," said Neelesh Mishra, the brain behind the venture.

Neelesh is a journalist, lyricist and script writer.

His father, scientist-turned-educationist S.B. Mishra, is the editor-in-chief of Gaon Connection, which is being circulated in all 75 districts of the state.
