Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday warned the workers of Hindu Yuva Vahini to maintain a decent behaviour in whatever work they do, according to a report published in The Indian Express. UP CM asked the group, that has been founded by him, not to misuse the colour saffron as the image of the outfit or the BJP would suffer. The report states that this statement was made by the UP CM during his recent Gorakhpur visit before addressing the party workers at a separate meet.
According to the report, Yogi Adityanath held a closed-door meeting with the Vahini leaders of the Gorakhpur region at the Gorakhnath temple and asked them to monitor the execution of government schemes. “The CM has asked leaders and workers to behave with decency,” P K Mall, the state organisation secretary of the Vahini told The India Express. Yogi Adityanath is reportedly concerned about BJP’s image in Uttar Pradesh.

“The CM said that it often happens that an unknown person with a saffron scarf or dress commits any indecent and illegal act but the HYV and the BJP organisations get blamed,” a BJP leader who was present at the meeting was quoted as saying in the report. While addressing a meeting of RSS at its regional headquarters, Adityanath said everyone should make an effort for protection, conservation and development of cows. “Just by raising the slogan of ‘gau mata ki jai’, cows cannot be protected. You must also make honest efforts from your side for cow protection. Only then would cows survive,” Adityanath was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
He also defended his government’s decision to cancel 15 public holidays in the name of great personalities. “We have divided the great men into castes that have led do division of society and it is unfortunate,” the CM said, adding that while holidays were declared, people were not informed about the contribution of these personalities. “We will try to educate students about these personalities and inculcate in them the feeling of patriotism,” he said.
