Taking a dig at the ongoing ruckus in the Parliament, the Prime Minister said that, just because of their political interest, the Opposition is disrespecting the Parliament continuously. He said that the Parliament cannot become hostage of such people. He said that while the country was making new records then these people were busy blocking the Parliament. He said that new India is not worried about the post but busy in winning medals. The Prime Minister also interacted with the beneficiaries of the scheme from various districts of state.

He informed that 17 development projects worth 138 crore rupees have been completed while work on 54 mega projects worth 3,136 crore rupees are going on in the city. Yogi said that new development projects worth 8,568 crores are proposed for the city.
 
Uttar Pradesh is celebrating Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana Day today. The Function is being organised as Ann Mahotsav and the address of Prime Minister was telecasted live at all the PDS shops of the state.
