Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the ₹9,802 crores Saryu Nahar National Project in the Balrampur district of Uttar Pradesh on Saturday. The UP Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath, welcomed PM Modi and thanked him for launching the 'Saryu Nahar National Project' for farmers' welfare. During his speech at the event, the Chief Minister said that the project will benefit about 30 lakh farmers of the state. He added that PM Modi has fulfilled the resolution of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. 

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said, "Respected Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji will dedicate to the nation the 'Saryu Nahar National Project' built from about ₹10,000 crores today. About 30 lakh farmers will be benefited from this project, which is more than 6,600 km long, being operated after more than 4 decades." He said that the farmers are happy about the announcement of 'Saryu Nahar Yojana'. Lashing out at the opposition, without taking any specific name, Yogi said that the previous governments have failed to execute development projects in Eastern Uttar Pradesh. Now, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has left no stone unturned to give employment and other facilities to the people of Uttar Pradesh, he added.
