He said that it is a matter of pride for all of you to be a member of the UP Legislative Assembly. The number of women members in the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly is 47. One should not be satisfied with such numbers. Similarly, the Legislative Council of 100 members has only five members. We have to make extensive efforts in this direction. In the Constituent Assembly of India, Uttar Pradesh has the largest number of members. Those great men have been coming and going in the same corridors of the Vidhan Bhavan in which all of you have to come and go. Along with the old Chief Ministers, Mulayam Singh Yadav and Mayawati have led the state efficiently over the years. UP also has the distinction of giving the country the first woman Prime Minister.
