“Everyone defeated the Samajwadi Party together. Today, during Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's rule, mafia and gangsters are migrating. After this, the development started here,” the Home Minister said.

He said that there was a time when Hindus were migrating from Uttar Pradesh and gave the example of Kairana.

“Today, goons are migrating instead of Hindus. Yogi Adityanath has worked to improve the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh within seven years. Today, there is a rule of law in Uttar Pradesh. The mafia rule has ended,” Shah said.

He said that airports were being built all over Uttar Pradesh.

“Expressways and six-lane roads are being constructed in Uttar Pradesh. The government is working to provide electricity to 80 lakh villagers. The PM Modi-led government has done the work of providing free treatment up to Rs 5 lakh to more than three crore poor people,” the Home Minister said. “Besides, 2 crore toilets were built in 10 years and 14 crore people have been availing the benefits.”

He said that PM Modi had provided houses to more than 4 crore people and gas cylinders to 14 crore people.
