Uttar Pradesh riot-free since 2017, now preferred destination for investment: Yogi Adityanath

Yogi Adityanath, who claims success in decreasing crime in the state, accused his predecessors of failing to implement police reforms and changes because they intended to utilize the department as a personal instrument.

The chief minister also stated that the state has been devoid of riots and terrorist attacks for the past five years, and that Uttar Pradesh had become a desired investment location.

“There were 364 riots under the BSP rule (2007-2012),” Adityanath stated, referring to the earlier regimes. There have been no riots in the state since 2017. The government, on the other hand, is not silent. We are constructing an Anti-Terrorism Squad Centre in sensitive locations for national security reasons.

Using data from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), the chief minister claims that incidences of dacoity have decreased by 58%, loot has down by 64%, murder has decreased by 23%, abduction has decreased by 53%, and dowry has decreased by 53%, dowry killing by eight per cent, and rape by 43 per cent.

Speaking further, Adityanath said 155 hardcore criminals were killed in encounters while another 3,638 were injured in raids among others during his tenure. According to the chief minister, illegal properties worth Rs 2,046 crore belonging to criminals were seized and demolished.

He said better law and order practice changed the image of the state and, as a result, Memorandums of Understanding for investment proposals worth Rs 4.68 lakh crore were signed in its first investment summit. A record Rs 3 lakh crore worth projects have already been executed, he mentioned. Even during COVID-19, the state received investment proposals worth over Rs 66,000 crore, he said.
