He said the announcement of providing two LPG cylinders free of cost to beneficiary families of the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana has been given place in the budget. A ‘Bhamashah Bhav Stability Fund’ has been established in the budget to provide relief to farmers in the form of minimum support price for perishable crops like potato, tomato and onion, Adityanath said.

As per the election manifesto, the process of providing free solar panels under the ‘Pradhan Mantri Kusum Yojana’ is being taken forward to facilitate farmers, he said. Under this, a provision has been made in this budget to provide more than 15,000 solar panels, he added.

Funds required for the construction of an international airport in Ayodhya have also been allotted in the budget, he said.
