CM Adityanath Yogi plans to arrive at 1.20pm at Mathura Helipad tomorrow. The CM will give a speech at a public rally at Jubilee Park. CM Yogi’s visit is timed to coincide with local elections, which will be held in 3 phases across UP from 22nd and will be held in the Braj area on 26th of this month.
CM Yogi is a frequent visitor of pilgrimage places and has promised development in Braj across many fronts, including a helicopter service connecting the major pilgrimage places in North India. There was talk that the helicopter service might start from September, so it is already behind schedule, but, no doubt, the BJP is hoping that it will be vote winner.
On CM Yogi’s last visit, he was delayed by an hour by protesters who blocked the road to protest against house demolitions on the Yamuna floodplain. Many of Braj’s residents have high expectations from the Yogi government. CM Yogi has said that he wants to work like PM Modi,but some residents of Braj are becoming displeased with PM Modi’s failure to honor every promise. At a recent rally in Vrindavan, Yamuna Muktikaran Abhiyan members said that they will launch a new phase of protests on 18th March, which marks three years after PM Modi’s promise to clean the Yamuna.
CM Yogi pleased most residents of Braj when he closed down 16 meat shops in Mathura during his first week in office. Since the signing of the ‘24 hour power for all 2019’ pact earlier this year, residents of Mathura-Vrindavan have also noticed a drastic improvement in the electricity supply.
Recently, CM Yogi promised to spend 100 crore on beautification of the area around Bihariji and restoring Braj’s kunds, however, the development of the area around Bihariji temple may not be a vote winner as the widening of roads means that many home and business owners will have to sacrifice part of their properties.
Since coming to power, the BJP has focused on development. In this round of elections, beautification and cleanliness of public places are top on the agenda.
