Yogi’s first big decision as soon as the second term starts, will give free ration to more than 15 crore people of UP

On Friday, Yogi Adityanath was sworn in for a second term as Uttar Pradesh’s chief minister.

On Friday, March 25, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath convenes the first meeting of the state’s council of ministers in Lucknow.

Yogi Adityanath extended Uttar Pradesh’s free ration scheme for three months for 15 crore people on Saturday, his first major decision a day after his inauguration. The scheme will cost the state of Uttar Pradesh $3,270 crore. “We decided to extend the free ration scheme for the next three months at today’s cabinet meeting. It will benefit the state’s 15 million residents “ANI news agency quoted the chief minister as saying.

After a mega oath ceremony on Friday attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, union ministers, and chief ministers of BJP-ruled states, among other top leaders, the chief minister held his first cabinet meeting on Saturday morning. A crowd of over 70,000 people packed the Atal Bihari Vajpayee cricket stadium.

With this latest move, the BJP hopes to keep the Yogi 2.0 regime focused on pro-poor governance. In addition, with an eye on the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the new state cabinet has focused on balancing caste and regional equations. OBCs and Dalits make up the majority of the 52-member team. Nine Dalits are among the 20 OBC ministers.
