The Chief Minister pointed out that the size of the budget has been increasing annually since 2017.
“This supplementary budget is the biggest budget to date, when the government brings the budget in the state, one has to take care of its income also,” CM Yogi said.
The Chief Minister said that the loan disbursement in the state has become efficient as the people are increasingly able to avail it through banks.
He said that the people’s outlook towards Uttar Pradesh has changed.
“There was a SP government in the state four times… Today, people’s outlook towards Uttar Pradesh has changed. This is the new Uttar Pradesh of New India. The opposition members too should be happy if our UP will move forward and make economic progress,” CM Yogi said while addressing the winter session of the Assembly.
