What’s new with Amethi?

We came to this constituency, and when I say “we,” I’m referring to the people of Amethi, who desired change. And I first met you seven years ago on development concerns, and now that you’re here on Good Governance Day, there’s a lot we can talk about. When I first arrived, the collector’s office was closed, the chief medical officer’s office was closed, and the chief education officer’s office was closed. We lacked essential hospital amenities such as a trauma centre, a referral hospital for women and children, a modern fire station, a bypass that had been promised for three decades, and a medical college that had been promised for four decades. As a result, everything that exists now in Amethi.
