Yogi Adityanath has made a good beginning

UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath has fulfilled PM Narendra Modi’s poll promise to the farmers to waive off their loans.

This is a welcome step. For the last three years, farmers in the state were in distress because of failed crops and mounting loans, and Tuesday’s cabinet decision will bring relief to many of them.

Looking at other major decisions taken at the cabinet meeting, it appears that Yogi Adityanath has a clearcut roadmap in front of him. He will not only be fulfilling populist promises, but also try to bring about reforms in governance.

Exodus of people from the state due to agrarian crisis and unemployment is one major problem. Yogi has sought to address this by formulating a new industrial policy that can create new jobs.

He has also tried to offer better prices for farm produce. All in all, we can say that Yogi has made a good beginning. What is required is careful implementation of these policies with the same seriousness with which they have been formulated.
