The newly elected Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed the DGP Javeed Ahmed to ensure that no slackness should be allowed in maintaining law and order and communal harmony in the state. In a meeting that took place later in the evening today with civil administration and police officials, the DGP and Principal Secretary (Home) Debashish Panda asked to “adopt strict actions to maintain law and order”. The DGP has also asked officials to tap down on criminals, organised crime and mafias, and ensure safety of women in the state. Commenting upon the ongoing development in law and order, a senior police official said, “The officers were asked to remain present in their offices on time and work on redressing the problems of the people. Besides, they were asked for better coordination with traders and ensure strict action to maintain communal harmony.”

The DGP earlier today also took an inspection of the security arrangement for the chief minister. Later the officers were directed to undertake elaborate measures for the purpose. “No laxity will be tolerated in this”, the DGP said in his directive during the meeting.” Adtiyanath’s directive came hours after a Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader was shot dead in Allahabad on Sunday. Official sources informed that CM Adityanath has expressed concern over the incident and stressed that restoring law and order was the top priority of his government. The 60-year-old BSP leader Mohd Shami was shot dead by assailants close to his residence in Mauaima police station area yesterday.
