Taking an innovative route to create buzz around the forthcoming Uttar Pradesh Global Investors Summit (GIS) 2023, chief minister Yogi Adityanath has picked up retired officials for the prestigious task.

The select team will acquaint the youth with the employment-oriented schemes and policies of the Yogi government. They will visit different universities/colleges, address job related queries of students and make them aware of the benefits of the GIS for the youth.
Recently, the CM interacted with the group, giving them a pep talk ahead of their campaign. He said students should be made aware of the ambitious plans of the government by visiting universities and colleges across the districts.
“All of you have long experience in public life, having held important positions. Your cooperation is solicited so that our youths benefit from your experiences,” he observed.
In this talk, Yogi underlined that UP had presented a new identity in front of the country and the world. “People’s perception towards the state has changed. All of you have been witnesses to this big change, have been co-travellers.”
He maintained UP is a state of immense possibilities and vital the overall development of the country.
