“Before 2017, UP was known for anarchy, bumpy roads…”: CM Yogi

However, now Uttar Pradesh is moving along the path of development, according to the BJP leader. The former Lok Sabha MP added, “Today every girl, every sister feels safe in the state. Medical colleges have been built in Ghazipur and Jaunpur.
