Yogi Adityanath government in a joint working group with top officials of NITI Ayog is working on a roadmap to ensure all-round development of Uttar Pradesh in the next 15 days.
“Niti Aayog vice-chairman Dr. Arvind Panagariya has proposed the names of member Ramesh Chandra and chief executive officer Amitabh Kant as members the joint working group,” Adityanath told reporters after a meeting with NITI Aayog officials.
Sidhartha Nath Singh, the state chief secretary and principal secretary (planning) will be the three members from Yogi’s cabinet in the joint working group.
“It is for the first time that NITI Aayog has gone to a state and interacted with the government and administration to evolve a solution.
