Uttar Pradesh Industrial Development Minister, Satish Mahana, said: “The first ground breaking ceremony last year was highly successful and this time more than 250 projects worth around Rs 65,000 crore are being announced. Out of the projects that were announced in the first ceremony, only two projects could not be started due to policy related issues. Other projects have materialised.”

Yusuffali MA, Chairman and Managing Director of the Lulu Group, said: “We have 174 shopping malls across the country. It was decided by us to open a mall in northern India and we have chosen to invest in Lucknow. When I met Yogi Adityanath with the proposal, he decided to provide us every possible help. This is how an investor gets confidence. Many industrialists are participating in the second ground breaking ceremony and are ready to invest because of support from the state government.”

Eminent cardiologist Naresh Trehan told reporters, “We have planned to lay the foundation stone for a 700-bed hospital in Noida. In future we will also build institutions like Medanta in Varanasi and Gorakhpur which are in eastern part of the state. The ground breaking ceremony has created a healthy environment for investment and is undoubtedly going to be a huge success.”
