During the Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav governments, investment proposals worth Rs 500 billion were received by the state. However, most proposals proved to be mere photo-ops and never materialized due to the sloppy follow-ups, lousy policy, and perception of bad law and order.
Therefore, UPIS 2018 has become a matter of prestige for Yogi Aditynath, and hence, he has fueled all cylinders to impress participating investors and meet set investment target.
