The chief minister was campaigning for his BJP nominees in the local body elections. Adityanath said that the SP, the BSP, and the Congress had already accepted defeat and there was no contest left in these civic polls.

Making an appeal to the electorate to vote for his party nominees, he said the BJP has prepared a roadmap for development and elaborated on the schemes for youth, farmers and the homeless among others.

Recalling the recent Diwali celebrations in Ayodhya, he said that the town (Farrukhabad) will also light up the same way and assured voters that there will not be any shortage of funds for the Nagar Palika for development work.

In Firozabad, he said that rule of law has been set up replacing the goonda raj of the previous government.

"Brakes have applied on illegal works and common people are feeling secure...In this brief time, the state has begun its march towards development," the chief minister said.

Speaking about the glass factory at Firozabad which accounts for exports worth Rs 2,000 crore, he said that it will be further developed under the new policy of the state government and a showroom will be opened in Lucknow to project it in a better manner.

He promised insurance for the labourers connected with the Firozabad glass industry, a showroom on the expressway and setting up of a transport nagar.
