Yogi Adityanath's self-appraisal of three years of his govt seems fake.

Yogi claims of drastic  improvement in law and order, investments and development.

But a closer look at the official figures and statements doesn’t reveal a rosy picture.

Yogi is the first BJP CM in the state to complete a continuous tenure of three years

UP CM  has emerged as a divisive figure, making provocative statements across the country

He has been allegedly protecting party colleagues accused in crimes against women.

A detailed report card of his regime prove the false promises of the government

Rise in unemployment

BJP had promised to provide 70 lakh jobs in UP but unemployment has only risen since 2017

According to Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) data, unemployment almost doubled in the state last year

Unemployment has grown to 9.95 per cent in 2019 from 5.91 per cent in 2018

During the last 3 years, many examinations got cancelled and results of several exams are pending.

Promised ‘investment’ not working out

Yogi claimed a total of 1,045 MoUs, worth Rs 4.28 lakh crore, were signed in 2018 investor's summit

Only 90 of those 1,045 projects had started commercial production until January 2020

These investors’ summits could neither bring investments nor employment.

The law and order situation and ‘anti-Romeo squads’

The ‘zero tolerance’ law and order policy, could not help improve the law and order in the state

The state police engaged in “3,896 encounters and arrested 8,904 accused in the process”

While 76 criminals were killed in these shootouts, 1,154 others were injured.

National Human Rights Commission served two notices to the UP government

Adityanath claimed a fall in crime but the National Crime Records Bureau report shows the reality

The report says, UP topped the list of crimes against women with 59,445 cases

These numbers have come despite the creation of ‘Anti-Romeo squads’

Two BJP leaders have also been involved in controversial rape cases.

Anti-CAA protests & hoarding controversy

When protests broke out in the state in December last year against thw CAA...

... the Yogi Adityanath government moved to stop them with alleged police brutality

19 people were killed during anti-CAA demonstrations and hundreds were injured

The 'name and shame' hoardings brought shame to the government

In three years, Yogi Government has failed badly on employment, investment and law and order fronts.
