After assuming power as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath is racing to deliver on the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) pre-poll promises – the biggest being checking the deteriorating law and order situation under the ex-CM Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party government. Starting from the anti-Romeo squad to imposing a ban on illegal slaughterhouses, Yogi has hit the ground running, working hard to assure public safety and development of the state. In a review meeting in Lucknow today, Adityanath asked police officials to change their working style and work more to ensure a feeling of security takes root in the public and also raise fear in criminals. To ensure a corruption-free state, Yoginath stressed on the need to bring transparency in the working style of the officials. As reported by PTI, Yogi Adityanath said,”The police must establish a direct communication with people and must take cognizance of even the most minor incident.”
Yogi Adityanath said,”The police must establish a direct communication with people and must take cognizance of even the most minor incident.” While discussing recent incidents of hate crimes against African students in Greater Noida and also the bomb explosion in Sant Kabir Nagar, he directed police officials to work on an elaborate plan to put the right strategy in place. He also insisted that they must go out for field visits, to familiarise themselves about the ground reality.
“If the police officials take out some time from their busy schedule and undertake foot patrolling for a few kilometers along with their subordinates, then it will instill a feeling of safety and reassurance among the public,” he said. Adityanath added,”If the department incorporates a change in its style of working then it would create fear in the mind of criminals and anti-social elements.”
Emphasising on the need to strengthen internal discipline between the police officials and subordinates, chief minister has asked the police officials to keep a check on their team, so they can identify the black sheep involved with criminals and anti-social elements.
“Identify the black sheep in departments who are acting in collusion with criminals and anti-social elements,” Adityanath said.
Considering that the Swachh Bharat scheme is such an important part of the BJP plans for the country, he also insisted that police officials must ensure that they keep their homes and offices clean.
