UP CM launches cleanliness campaign in Modi's constituency

Press Trust of India  |  Varanasi 

Chief Minister today led the central government's 'Swachhta Hi Seva' campaign in Prime Minister Modi's Loksabha constituency here.

He also presented appreciation certificates to 15 'safai mitras', who contributed to the cleanliness mission, at the Sanskriti School here.

Hailing the Modi-led central for framing policies with "honesty and without making any bias", the chief minister said people have reposed faith in a political party which is working for the poor, farmers and all sections of the society.

He also hit out at the previous dispensation for favouring a particular community for the sake of their vote- and not for the benefit of poor and farmers.

Outlining the initiatives undertaken by the Modi government, Adityanath said in a first, 30 crore poor people got access to banks even with zero balance along with a cover of accident and life of Rs 2 Lakh.

The leader also held a review meeting with district officials at the Commissioner Compound here and oversaw the preparations for Modi's visit to Varanasi on September 22 and 23.
