Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday presented a White Paper on completion of six months of his government. Speaking to media, Adityanath also slammed the previous Akhilesh Yadav government in the state. “Pichhli sarkar ne vikas par rok lagaya, bhrashtachaar aur kanoon vyavstha par dhyaan nahi diya (preceding Government halted development in the state, they didn’t pay attention to corruption and law order situation),” Adityanath was quoted as saying by ANI.
According to ETV Uttar Pradesh, Adityanath said that the White Paper includes the entire report on the works of previous governments. He added that only 3 per cent of funds were spent on development related works in the last 10 years. The chief minister said that people have the right to know everything happening in the system and the White Paper includes entire details of the same. He said the government will also present a report on the achievements of the government tomorrow or day after tomorrow.
Adityanath made these comments soon after taking oath as a member of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council, meeting the mandatory six-month deadline to get elected to either house of the state after assuming office. Along with Adityanath, two deputy chief ministers, Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma were also administered the oath by Chairman of the Legislative Council Ramesh Yadav at a function at the Tilak Hall of the imposing Legislative Building here. Two other ministers Swantradev Singh and Mohsin Raza also took oath. Raza is a minister of state and serves in the cabinet as the lone Muslim face in the government.
