How Yogi Adityanath established rule of law in Uttar Pradesh in last 4 years?

Those who grew up in 90s era will recall the Gundaraj which prevailed then:

-Criminals ran the show
-Mafia became lawmakers
-Rioters roamed free
-Police officers hounded for action on criminals
Every tender, contract, govt job was virtually decided by Crime syndicate.

Contrast this with the situation today:

-Criminals cancelling bail/ parole
-Mafias crossing over to other states
-Rioters offering to pay fine for loss
-Gundas surrendering to be inside jails
-Romios disappearing from nukkads
-Tenders being decided transparently
-No corruption in government jobs
-No cut money for welfare schemes
-Communal riots stopped completely
-Illegal slaughterhouses closed
-Ransom, kidnapping down

Thread on employment in UP by Yogi Sarkar!

As per a recent CMII survey, UP is best performing state in providing employment:
🔸 Unemployment rate of UP is at 6.9%
🔸 Lowest among all states
🔸 2.5 times lower than 2017 levels of 17.5%
🔸 Seven times lower than Delhi Image
Same report confirms that, in last 4 years, Yogi Sarkar has:

🔸 provided 4 lakhs jobs in govt
🔸 facilitated 15 lakhs jobs in private sector
🔸 given self employment opportunities to 150 lakhs people

This is despite pandemic & huge influx of migrant worker from other states. Image
Four lakhs government jobs in four years, that's huge by any given standards. This is:
🔸 35% more than the ten year period of SP & BSP rule
🔸 4 times more than that of Mayawati's tenure
🔸 Double than that of Akhilesh Yadav's tenure

That too without corruption & nepotism! Image
