"The eyes of the entire nation are fixed on Uttar Pradesh as the country is expecting changes in the national politics and Samajwadi Party is set to play an important role in it in the days to come," Akhilesh said while addressing an election meeting at Nawabganj, about 40 km from Farrukhabad.
In an apparent counter to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's recent remarks that it is not easy to bring Gujarat-like development in UP, Akhilesh said, "With the help of several new projects, the state would soon surpass Gujarat in the field of milk production."
"As many as 250 applications have been received so far for setting up mini milk dairies under government scheme and government would soon issue them licenses," the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said.     

Akhilesh also said that 500 additional MBBS seats had been created in the state with the setting up of new medical colleges.
“Power plants were coming up soon in Allahabad and Lalitpur to fulfill the demand,” he said.
Besides, several schemes to support people for treatment of serious ailments were on the anvil and most medical facilities were available free of cost in government hospitals of the state, he added.
Rejecting allegations of slow pace of development in Farrukhabad, Akhilesh said that the focus would be on the progress of this area as well.
