He also expressed confidence in increasing the state's per capita income to more than the country's average within next five years.
I believe that within the next five years, per capita income of Uttar Pradesh will be more than per capita income of the country. Nobody should doubt this," he said.

"Uttar Pradesh government has established 555 oxygen plants in various hospitals across the state," he added.
