"That day is not far when Uttar Pradesh will be identified as the most modern state with next-generation infrastructure. The network of expressways in UP, the new airports being built, new rail routes being laid down are bringing several blessings to people of UP simultaneously," PM Modi said.

"The modern infrastructure coming up in UP today shows how resources are utilised. You have seen how public's money was used earlier. But today, UP's money is being used for UP's development," PM Modi said.

PM Modi targets Opposition

In his speech, PM Modi targeted the Opposition and the previous governments in Uttar Pradesh, saying only a few benefited [from the schemes] earlier.

PM Modi said that earlier, "only a section of people benefited and now everyone gets a chance to avail the benefits." He said that now, the government's focus is on "sabka sath, sabka vikas, sabka vishwas, sabka prayas".

PM Modi said there have been some political parties that have problems with the country's 'vikas [development] and virasat [heritage]'.

"They have problems with the heritage because they are more concerned about vote banks...," PM Modi said.

"UP + Yogi bohot hai upyogi"

PM Modi went on to laud the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh and raised slogans of "UP + Yogi bohot hai upyogi" -- meaning Yogi Adityanath's government in Uttar Pradesh is of great utility.

"People now say UP plus Yogi bahut hai upyogi," PM Modi said at rally in Uttar Pradesh's Shahjahanpur.
