Union Home Minister and BJP Chief Amit Shah hailed UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath as an able administrator, who eliminated politicization of bureaucracy that marred development of country’s most populous states before BJP came to power in 2017. He also said, the road to turn India’s $5 trillion economy passes through UP.

“UP ke andar prashashan ka rajneetikaran itna zyada hua tha ki pardarshita kahin door dur tak nahi thi. Focus hi prashashan tha. Prashashan rajnetaon ko khush karne mein laga rehta tha...Main kisi ka naam nahi lena chahta (There was no transparency due to politicization of bureaucracy. Focus was on administration which was busy keeping politicians in good humour. I won’t take anyone’s name),” said Shah, while speaking at the second groundbreaking ceremony of 250 projects of Rs 65,000 crore. Shah said the Yogi government has turned bureaucrats into ‘janta ke sewak’ (helper of people), rather than ‘rajnetaon ke sewak’ (helpers of politicians).
