It was just yesterday that the new Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had spoken in the Lok Sabha saying that he would bring a brashtachaar-mukt and goonda-gardi-mukt Uttar Pradesh into being and today, some action was seen on the ground. In a recent development in Uttar Pradesh, Deputy Inspector General of Police(DIG) has suspended 13 constables deployed at Noida’s Sector-20 in the backdrop of recieving complaints of them taking bribes. This news comes three days after the coronation of BJP fireband leader Adityanath as the CM.
Not just a crackdown against corruption, the new Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government has cracked down against hooligans. From Anti-Romeo squads to sweeping out the trash to create more hygienic living conditions, it seems Adityanath is racing to deliver the promises he and his party made during the election campaign. Earlier in the day, in order to ensure safety of women in the largest state Uttar Pradesh, ‘Anti-Romeo squads’ of police were out on patrol near colleges, parks, and other public places. Police Chief Javeed Ahmed said,” The idea is to reclaim the public spaces and make them safe for women.”
However, to make sure that order passed by the authorities doesn’t take up the form of moral policing, cops had instructed their men on not to harass anyone. “I have instructed all my men that there should be no harrasment,” a police officer told NDTV.
Today, the safforn-robbed priest-politician Adityanath also turned to his personal website to seek opinion on cow slaughter ban, whose results were reveled immediately. The opinion poll read: “Do we need to formulate strict law to stop cow slaughter?” Almost 80 per cent of respondents favoured cow slaughter ban and enactment of this stern law, whereas 19 per cent spoke against it. Though, there was no option to check the views expressed by the people.
Yesterday, in his farewell speech in the Lok Sabha, Yogi Adityanath assured that UP too will work for all sections of the society just like the government at the Centre, making it clear that his main focus is on development and not on caste and religion.
