The Uttar Pradesh government has cleared the proposal for constructing a “bicycle highway” connecting Taj Mahal in Agra to Lion safari in Etawah. The plan aims at encouraging eco-tourism in the vicinity of the Taj Mahal. The highway was approved in a Cabinet meeting presided over by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
It approved the implementation of Prime Minister Crop Insurance Scheme (Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana) from the Kharif season 2016. Under the scheme, a farmer will have to pay a uniform premium of only 2% for all Kharif crops and 1.5% for all Rabi crops. It approved transfer policy for 2016-17 for employees.
So let’s do:
1. Name the state, Which has approved bicycle highway between Taj and lion safari ?
2. Who is the Chief minister of Uttar Pradesh ?
3. Who is the Governor of Uttar Pradesh ?
