Addressing the event related to the 98th-anniversary celebrations of Sadguru Sadafaldeo Vihangam Yog Sansthan at Swarved Mahamandir Dham in Umraha, the Prime Minister said that good governance (su-raj) was as important for India as self rule (swaraj).
PM Modi said that the city was "giving a new direction to the country" by embracing the novelty of the old. "In comparison to 2014-15, the number of tourists visiting here has doubled in 2019-20. In the 2019-20 COVID-19 period, more than 30 lakh people have come and gone from Babatpur airport alone,' he said.
Modi who visited Banaras railway station late on Monday night also noted the developmental work that was undertaken there. "The beautification work that has been done in Gaudolia has become a sight to behold," the BJP Twitter handle quoted him as saying.
Modi urged people to take up some resolutions. "One resolution can be this – we have to educate the daughter, develop her skills too. Along with their families, those who can take responsibility in the society, they should also take the responsibility of skill development of one or two poor daughters," he said.
PM Modi was accompanied by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
