Speaking at a rally in Jhansi, Adityanath promised regular power supply in state and announced linking Bundelkhand with six lanes. He also assured that no poor will remain hungry and die without treatment during his tenure as chief minister.

Earlier in the day, Adityanath undertook a surprise inspection of the District Hospital in Jhansi where he enquired about treatment and other facilities from the patients. He also inspected the Krishi Mandi at the Kanpur Road and a primary school in Takori village in Badagaon and enquired about the mid-day meal given to the children.

It comprises 13 districts in all — Jhansi, Lalitpur, Jalaun, Hamirpur, Mahoba, Banda and Chitrakoot (all in UP), and Datia, Tikamgarh, Chhatarpur, Panna, Sagar and Damoh (all in MP).

The BJP in its Lok Kalyan Sankalp Patra (manifesto for 2017 UP Assembly elections) had said that it will constitute Bundelkhand Development Board to ensure all-round development of region. The manifesto also mentioned that the party will form Pond Development Authority (Talab Vikas Pradhikaran) to ensure conservation and revamping of various ponds.

    The UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath is not only a man of his words but a capable leader who wastes no time in implementing the plans to help the poor, a reliable regular power supply with no interruptions in the state which is an absolute necessary to bring in the various developments. The UP is one of the largest state but remained back word because of the communal/incompetent parties like the BSP and SP who looted UP's wealth for decades. The biased news media with vested interests, the pseudo secular congress leaders, the NDTV, etc tried to portray Yogi as a Hindu fundamentalist because of his looks/saffron dress but Yogi has proven them wrong.

          Our leaders including Modi have no strong will or priority to help por of the poorest. One space project or one defense project is equal to food for all poor of India

            Does it include minorities? It t is the most comp ionate and humane statement have I ever heard from any politician. Let us watch how meaningful it is and how he proves it. I want to track it. In the past he has issued very controversial and communal statements . I hope there is some truth in it at least and it includes minorities.
