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).”
