The state government has shortlisted 115 indices for judging the district’s position in implementing government’s development schemes. The development schemes are part of the 203-point development agenda released by CM Akhilesh Yadav on August 17 last year.
The CM, while releasing the development agenda had said: “I have fixed the time-frame for development work. The government is giving it in writing and you can ask us about the progress”.
