Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Government has picked up pace by issuing orders to finish pending works. A closer look at the orders indicates that most of them have been issued in 2021, as the elections are due in early 2022. Ahead of the assembly elections, the UP Government is on a spree of public rallies, inaugurations and laying foundation stones every day.
The departments of the state government are busy issuing government orders to get the pending work done before the state goes to polls. Most of the government orders of 2021 have been issued in the last quarter of the calendar year.
Meanwhile, PM Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath are engaged in ceremonies to inaugurate and lay the foundation stones of multiple projects in the state. “When the elections are near the pending issues are resolved. Use of the annual budget is low in the first three months and the most funds are used in the last three months every year. But this is more so in an election year” agreed Alok Ranjan, former Uttar Pradesh chief secretary.
