New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday greeted residents of Uttar Pradesh on the state’s foundation day and expressed hope that it will continue to progress on the path of development and prosperity.

“Hearty greetings to all the residents of the state on Uttar Pradesh Diwas. The hardworking and talented people of Uttar Pradesh have made impressive contributions to history, art, culture, literature and politics of India. I wish that the state continues to progress on the path of development and prosperity,” Prez Kovind tweeted.
