Asserting the newly formed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Uttar Pradesh is dedicated to weed out corruption in the state, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has today stated that only officials with clean and honest image will be offered keys positions and will be given due encouragement. The newly elected CM has further said that the state government is committed to take strong steps against corruption, on the lines of the center.

“All out steps will be taken to curb corruption for which working will be made transparent in all the state government departments and schemes,” an official release quoting the Chief Minister said.

With this aim in mind, Adityanath has directed all ministers to engage only people with clean and honest image in their staff so as to fulfil the resolve of the state government to provide corruption-free and transparent governance, it said. No tainted official should be engaged in personal staff, the Chief Minister stressed.

Also, ruling out any role of middlemen in wheat procurement, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today asked peoples’ representatives to help in monitoring wheat purchase centres which will go functional in the state from tomorrow.

“The Chief Minister has desired that MLAs and MPs help in monitoring of working at purchase centres and provide feedback on implementation of government orders in this regard,” an official spokesman said.

Cautioning that no one would be allowed to play with the interests of farmers, he has warned of stern action in case of laxity in any of the purchase centres. Pointing out that arrangements have been made to procure wheat directly from farmers, Adityanath said unlike the previous regime, his government would not allow any role of middlemen in the procurement process. The Chief Minister said the support price of the produce will be directly transferred in the bank accounts of farmers who will be identified through their Aadhar cards.
