Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said Siddharthnagar was earlier known for the deadly encephalitis, but the district is now moving ahead “at the pace of a bullet train”.


Through the Global Investors’ Summit, an investment proposal of Rs 8,000 crore has been received for the district, the CM said at the closing ceremony of the five-day Siddharthnagar Mahotsav organised at the district headquarters.

“When this investment lands on the ground, this district will be revitalised.” The chief minister said that since its formation in 1988, the district was neglected for 30 years and struggled for an identity.
