PM also heaped praises on Uttar Pradesh by mentioning all the resources that the state has and their maximum utilisation. India can not grow without Uttar Pradesh.

Modi termed the "one district-one product" policy of the state government as game changer and lauded UP Chief Minister Adityanath Yogi for pulling the state out of negativity prevailing previously, and said the coming of investors in large number at the summit was an indicator in this regard. "We are heading towards new UP", Adityanath said, adding that "UP is heading towards development and shedding its "Bimaru" tag", reports PTI.

With this "capacity and strength", Modi said, UP can be a "growth engine" not just for north India but for the entire country. The Investors' Summit has been organised to further the cause of economic development in the state and attract investments.

This is expected to create 1,200 #jobs in Uttar Pradesh.

The companies that assured investments over the next five years included Reliance Jio (Rs 10,000 crore), Adani group (Rs 35,000 crore), Aditya Birla Group (Rs 25,000 crore), Essel Group (Rs 18,750 crore) and Mahindra & Mahindra (Rs 200 crore), reported Hinudstan Times.
