Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday visited Samajwadi Party supremo Akhilesh Yadav’s Lok Sabha constituency Azamgarh to take stock of Covid-19 management in the district. This comes days after he visited SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav’s home village Saifai in Etawah for the same purpose.
In Azamgarh, the Chief Minister visited Government Girls’ Inter College (GGIC) and monitored the facilities available for treatment of Covid-19 patients in the dedicated care centre. Thereafter, he paid a surprise visit and undertook an on-ground inspection in Bijuara village of Azamgarh and reviewed the healthcare facilities available for coronavirus infected patients.
“Our government is committed to the well-being of every citizen. For us, every life matters and will continue to save people like we have. The officials must ensure that adequate medical aid and food is provided to every person in need. Neither we have nor will we ever discriminate between voters and nonvoters, unlike others, we do not believe in serving people selectively,” he said.
He also interacted with the newly-elected Village Pradhan and advised him to work with the cooperation of the citizens, representatives, administrators and district officials to establish a synergy between the working of the government and common people in order to achieve the desired and best results for a harmonious and progressive society.
