Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Thursday said it was only the people of Purvanchal—and not scholars from “Harvard and Cambridge” universities—who could develop the region.
Inaugurating a webinar on sustainably developing Purvanchal, Adityanath said eastern UP is the “most prosperous region of the world” and it is just “thinking” that has made the region backward.
“Will eastern UP develop only when Harvard decides? Your development will be brought by the youth, farmers, women and intellectuals of this region. Harvard and Cambridge can never bring development,” he said.
