Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay foundation stones and launch 22 development projects worth Rs 870 crores in his Lok Sabha seat of Varanasi on Thursday, giving his Bharatiya Janata Party a big boost ahead of the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. According to the Prime Minister's Office, PM Modi will lay the groundwork for 'Banas Dairy Sankul' at the UP State Industrial Development Authority Food Park. The dairy, which will be built on 30 acres of land, would cost around Rs 475 crores and will have a capacity of 5 lakh gallons of milk per day.

It was stated that this would enhance the rural economy and benefit farmers in the region by providing new options. In addition, the Prime Minister would digitally transfer a Rs 35 crore incentive to the bank accounts of around 1.7 lakh milk farmers linked with Banas Dairy. According to the announcement, the Prime Minister will also lay the groundwork for a biogas-powered electricity production facility for the Milk Producers Cooperative Union Plant in Ramnagar, Varanasi. It will be a significant step toward achieving energy self-sufficiency at the Milk Producers Cooperative Union Plant.

PM Modi will introduce a website and logo for the Milk Product Conformity Assessment Scheme, which was created by the Bureau of Indian Standards with the help of the National Dairy Development Board.
