    Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s aspirational scheme ‘One District One Product (ODOP)’, focusing to boost the economy of the state by encouraging indigenous and specialised products of the districts, has started yielding results.

    For the first time, a fair has been organised at Dilli Haat for the branding of artisans of UP at the national and international level. In this fair, a total of 118 stalls from across 61 districts of the state will be set up from January 16 to 31.
