Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday (July 11) said that Janmashtami in Mathura should be celebrated like "Deepotsav" in Ayodhya.
Ramnavami in Ayodhya and Navratri in Vindhyachal should be celebrated the same way, he said in a meeting with the Braj Teerth Development Board.
"If you make this happen, then all these events will be able to gain global recognition and tourists from all over the world will be attracted towards them. This will boost tourism in Uttar Pradesh," the chief minister said.
He said all the development projects should be completed within time, maintaining good quality and standards.
"All the places related to Lord Krishna should be well lit, and halogen lights should be replaced with LED lights. For environment conservation, plastic should be banned in these places," Adityanath said.
During the meeting, a discussion was also held for the overall development of Vindhyachal on the lines of Kashi Vishwanath.
Around two dozen projects are underway in the region, and the chief minister has directed officers to complete them before November.
