  • The survivor’s father, an ironsmith belonging to the Lohar community, told ET how the local police of Bihar village in Unnao district were callous whenever his daughter had approached them for help after being raped last year. The father and sister-in-law of the deceased have spoken of a caste power play at work as both the key accused were Brahmins.

    The woman, who was raped in December last year and is being treated in a Lucknow hospital, said in a statement that she was on her way from her village in Unnao district to Rae Bareli where the trial is going on when she was attacked and set ablaze early on Thursday morning.

    This new policy comes close on the heels of a series of media reports from schools in UP regarding poor facilities or sub-standards mid-day meals.

    "We will not harm the interests of any employees. The properties of all those involved in this scam will be confiscated and every single paisa of each and every employee will be returned," Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said. "No one will be allowed to go scot free. The government has said this and will do it," Adityanath reiterated.

    "The cabinet has amended the UP Defence, Aerospace Unit and Employment Promotion Policy-2018 with provision of providing 25 per cent subsidy and 100 per cent stamp duty waiver for setting up defence industry in the state," Industrial Development Minister Satish Mahana told reporters in the state capital.

    A laggard Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state of the country, has been advised “to raise the game” in the implementation of the Ayushman Bharat Yojana and treble the number of daily treatments under the scheme at present.

    The chief minister has invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi to lay the foundation stone of two of these projects — the Bundelkhand Expressway this month and the Jewar International Airport in January. Work on the third such project, the defence corridor in UP, is expected to begin next February when the Defence Expo is held.

    The proposed Trust will allow people to make donations and is expected to cover a number of temples in Ayodhya in its ambit, including the proposed Ram Temple. Construction likely to begin from Ram Navami next April.

    The verdict, in favour of building a Ram temple, strengthens the political position of Adityanath ahead of the 2022 state elections, especially as no report of violence was reported across UP on Saturday when this paper went to print. He and his guru, Mahant Avaidyanath, have been champions of the Ram temple movement.

    According to an Uttar Pradesh government release, the security review by the Chief Minister is in the wake of the verdict delivered by the Supreme Court in Ayodhya case on November 9. The security measures will remain in place till December 15.

    After the apex court's verdict on claering way for Ram mandir at the site in Ayodhya, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath plans to deliver several projects revolving around Ram Lalla's birth place including an ‘Eye Theme Park’, Shabri garden, Ashok Vatika and international museum by 2023.

    UP has the largest number of beneficiaries among all states under the scheme. Out of the 79.7 million beneficiaries across the country, almost 18 million are in UP alone.
