UP is home to one-fifth of India’s population. That is the well-being of one person in UP, the well-being of every sixth person in India. I am confident that UP alone will give momentum to India’s growth story in the 21st century. This time in the budget, we have announced to create a corridor of chemical free natural agriculture within a radius of 2-3 km on both the banks of the Ganges. In UP, the Ganges is more than 1100 km long and passes through 5-20 districts. The great potential of natural farming is being created here.

The allocation of unprecedented capital expenditure of Rs 7.5 lakh crore in this year’s budget is a step in this direction.

He further said that in 2016, there were only 65 million broadband subscribers in our country. Today its number is more than 3 crores.
In 2012, one GB of data cost around Rs. Today the price has come down to Rs 11-12. India is one of the countries where data is so cheap. Before 2014, we had only about 100 start-ups. But today, the number of registered start-ups in the country is also reaching 30,000. Recently, India also set a record of 100 unicorns.
