Reiterating his government's commitment to bring development to the state, Adityanath said, "We want to assure people that government has started initiatives to take Uttar Pradesh forward on path of development." Adityanath praised the prime minister's agenda of "sab ka saath, sabka vikas," and added that his government too is following the footsteps of the Centre.

On 4 April, Adityanath cabinet waived off loans of worth more than Rs 36.000 crores, benefiting over 2.36 lakh small and marginal farmers.
Adityanath said that the government has been striving hard to make electricity affordable to the people and added that the the religious cities like Ayodhya and Chitrakoot were provided with uninterrupted power supply during Navaratri. He reiterated that his government is committed to provide electricity to every part of the state under "power for all" initiative.
Women's safety was one of the major issues the BJP had raised when it was in the opposition.
