The newly elected government in Uttar Pradesh is on its toes from Day 1 at office. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on his first day at the CMO has warned all his state bureaucrats to get ready for penal actions if in case they fail to check upon the communal flares in the state. The Principal Secretary Debashish Panda and Director-General of Police (DGP) Javeed Ahmed has asked the senior administrative officials and police to keep a tab on the social media for an active intervention in the issues that could splurge up any communal flare in the state. Adityanath has also asked his high rank administrative officials to strictly adhere to the BJP poll manifesto.
One of the two Deputy CM KP Maurya has also stressed on the need of improvement in law and order in the state. He said that government would make good on the BJP’s promise to shut down slaughterhouses. A decision would be taken ‘soon’, in the first meeting of the cabinet, he added. However, there is still a decision to be taken on licensed slaughterhouses in the state. CM Adityanath on Monday had also directed DGP Javeed Ahmed to ensure that there was no laxity in improving law and order situation. The directive came hours after a Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader was shot dead in Allahabad on March 19. The UP DGP, on Monday, conducted a video conference with the district magistrates and the superintendents of police of all the 75 districts of the state to take stock of law and order situation and other administrative issues of the state.
