People used to get frightened at the mere mention of the name Gorakhpur (because of anti-social elements). However, we broke the hegemony of these lumpen elements through various struggles, and eventually transformed Gorakhpur,” said Aditya Nath, who heads an influential Gorakh Dham Mutt here. “A corruption-free government, an administration, which is sensitive to the public. Gorakhpur has been a laboratory for this. We have been able to control the anti-social elements in Gorakhpur, and have been assigned a similar task of curbing the anti-social elements not only in eastern UP, but throughout the state. We have many things to do,” he said. The Chief Minister urged the public to take forward the welfare schemes of the Centre so that the benefits reach the last strata of the society. “The PM’s schemes have shown us a guiding light, which we should take forward,” he said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
