LUCKNOW, India — Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Aug. 31 announced that the next generation BrahMos missiles would be manufactured in his Parliamentary constituency Lucknow, the capital of the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.

“You must have got information through newspapers, but today I would like to repeat that,” the Union Minister said while inaugurating various developmental projects.

“Nobody ever imagined that missiles would be manufactured in Uttar Pradesh. BrahMos missiles will be manufactured near Lucknow. The Chief Minister had informed that an estimated over 5,000 people would get employment through this.”

The Defense Minister announced that each household in Lucknow soon would get Piped Natural gas (PNG) connections.

“I have been informed by Green gas Limited that a target has been set to provide PNG gas to each household in Lucknow, which will reduce the consumption of LPG gas,” said Singh.

The Defense Minister said that he aims to make Lucknow the number one city in the country.

He said that he could take up development projects on a large scale in his Parliamentary constituency, only because Yogi Adityanath is the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh.

“I would not have been able to do so much work in Lucknow if Yogi Adityanath had not been the chief minister,” said Singh.

“Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Maurya has also helped me in this. The interest of the Chief Minister and his deputies in the development of the state is the reason behind the speedy progress of the state. The pace of development in Uttar Pradesh has increased under Yogi Adityanath.”

Rajnath Singh also appreciated the Chief Minister’s efforts to take care of those children who were orphaned after the death of their parents due to Covid-19.

“The Uttar Pradesh Government has done a lot of work,” said Singh.

“But what touched my heart was the way he performed his duties faithfully during the Covid-19, despite being infected himself. He provided financial assistance to orphans. Only a sympathetic chief minister can think do so.”
