The chief minister was, however, safe and proceeded for the scheduled programmes, Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar said in Lucknow.
"Yes, the chief minister is safe," he told PTI.
The chopper was scheduled to land on the grounds of the Kasturba Gandhi Vidyalaya, but because of some problems it was forced to land on a field a kilometer away.
He also reviewed the developmental works and law and order situation in the district at the collectorate.
Meanwhile, SP Kasganj Piyush Srivastava told PTI, "The chief minister distributed the cheques and all the programmes were held successfully."
