Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday ordered the relieving of all non govt advisors, chairmen, deputy chairmen and members in corporations, committees and departments from their duties with immediate affect. The decision came hours after the newly-elected CM of Uttar Pradesh held his first meeting with senior bureaucrats. In his first meeting, Adityanath directed all senior government officials to read and carefully implement the points mentioned in Bharatiya Janata Party’s pre-poll ‘Sankalpa Patra’ (BJP’s election manifesto). As per reports, all the officials brought party’s Sankalp Patra in the meeting CM chaired at Lucknow’s Lok Bhavan. Adityanath also asked UP Government officials to submit details of their movable and immovable properties and income tax within a time period of 15 days. Along with Adityanath, Deputy CMs KP Maurya and Dinesh Sharma were also present in the meeting. Adityanath, who is 5-time from UP’s Gorakhpur, was sworn-in as the 21st chief minister of Uttar Pradesh on Sunday. The Gorakhnath temple Mahant was unanimous choice of 312 BJP MLAs.
In his first media interaction as UP CM, Adityanath vowed to implement promises made by BJP in its manifesto. The CM added that UP Government will be committed to eradicate ‘goondaraj’ from the state and take forward PM Narendra Modi’s mission of ‘sabka sath, sabka vikas’. Adityanath’s mega oath taking ceremony, which was held at Smriti Upvan in Lucknow, was attended top leaders including PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah among others.

Earlier in the day, BSP chief Mayawati launched a scathing attack on Adityanath and alleged that he will “divide the state on communal lines” and push RSS agenda in the state. The BSP supremo also said that Adityanath Government will not be able to maintain law and order in Uttar Pradesh. “In Uttar Pradesh, it does not matter if it is the SP or the BJP in power. They cannot control law and order. BJP has appointed a priest as chief minister who will not take forward the agenda of development but will push the RSS agenda. They will divide Uttar Pradesh on communal lines. Now, there will again be an environment of fear in the state,” she told reporters outside Parliament.
