 Need to Eradicate Poverty from Uttar Pradesh

Jim Yong Kim, World Bank president said that there is a need to eradicate poverty from Uttar Pradesh.

"In ending poverty we think that, once and for all, we will remove this stain from the consciousness of all of us in the world. It is not right that people live on less than our level, which is dollar twenty five a day and eight percent of those people live here at Uttar Pradesh," said Kim, while speaking to the media in Lucknow along with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

"I am confident that the relation between World Bank and the state of Uttar Pradesh would become stronger in the coming years," he added.

The World Bank president is presently on a three-visit to India along with his delegation.
