“There is a need to work on a large scale to reduce the number of deaths that happen in road accidents in the state,” Adityanath said, directing authorities to form the clubs on a priority basis. The monster has given instructions at a meeting attended by various departments.
In the meeting, the CM has also directed the officials to start a parcel or courier service by government buses. He further added that more than 26,000 villages have been connected with UPSRTC buses in the last five years, and now it should be made available in every village.
