Yogi Adityanath who sworn-in as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh on March 19, cracks down on VIP culture in the state. As per the order by the CM, no minister in the state will be allowed to use the red beacons atop vehicles. On his first day after the swearing-in ceremony, Aditynath sent a strong statement against corruption as he asked all the ministers in his cabinet to provide their income, moveable and immoveable assets within 15 days. Cabinet minister Srikant Sharma said, “As uprooting corruption is the main agenda of our party, the CM in his first introductory meeting with his ministers directed them to give details of their income, moveable and immoveable properties with 15 days to the (party) organisation as well as the secretary (to CM).”

Earlier in the week, Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh who assumed the Chief Minister’s office from March 16 also said no to the use of red beacons on top of the minister’s vehicles. All the beacons have been removed from the vehicles of Punjab Chief Minister and his council of ministers, after Amarinder Singh decision to put a ban on its use on government vehicles.

    Very Good. This VVIP culture must go everywhere. That simple act definitely brings Govt functionaries--be it the Political bigwigs or the bureaucrats,nearer to the people.That is a great step in making these people SERVANTS OF SOCIETY. Go a step further. Make a realistic essment of Retinue of Cars & Security Cover to all & sundry--whether present/former PM/CM/Ministers or Bureaucrats. Right now it looks like an ugly show of Status. I was quite taken aback when the Police said they were finding it difficult to provide 130 hands for Security Cover of a former PM. Actually, the beneficiaries themselves should be gracious enough to voluntarily discard or reduce such extravaganza. But that is not to be, because it is rare to find a Gulzarilal Nanda ( former PM twice,though temporarily) who lived with least of all this paraphernalia in a 2-bedroom flat in Delhi till he died. Some Soul-Searching is needed for all these VVIPs / VIPs of a not-so-rich country like ours.

    Very nice decisions. Mobile phone should also be banned in jails.so people in jail should not have any contacts with people outside the jail.
