Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has decided to do away with the practice of suspending non-performing officials, says a report by Hindi Daily Amar Ujala. Amidst rising number of reports of incidents of violence and crime across the state, the Yogi government has decided to give two chances to non- performing officials and then dismiss them from their respective jobs, says the report, which was tweeted by the official twitter handle of CM office, Government of Uttar Pradesh. CM Yogi made this latest announcement during his talk with BJP and Hindu Yuva Vahini workers at Devipatan Mandal on Sunday. Yogi said that some people were trying to spread anarchy in the state and people opposed to him are funding such elements. Without taking the name of two places in western Uttar Pradesh, Yogi said attempts were made to spread anarchy in these two places recently but they were foiled. The CM was apparently talking about the recent Saharanpur violence and a robbery incident in Mathura, where two jewellers were killed by masked robbers. Their act was caught on a CCTV camera. During the meeting, Yogi said that party leaders and the administration would have to inform wherever there is even a rumour of any mischief. The violence and subsequent Dalit protests in Saharanpur had raised question marks on the efficacy of Yogi administration. On Sunday, Uttar Pradesh was rocked again when a group of youths molested two girls in Rampur, recorded the act and shared it on social media. On Sunday, Yogi Adityanath had reviewed law and order situation Gonda on Sunday. However, on the same day, a person was killed and two others injured by unidentified assailants with sharp-edged weapons in Sahabganj locality of the district. The deceased had just come out of a religious place after offering prayers on Sunday night when the attack took place, police were reported as saying by PTI. Following the incident, a large number of people took to the street in the minority-dominated area to protest against the incident. Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi
Adityanath has questioned the silence of secular parties over Kerala’s beef festivals in protest against the Centre’s decision banning the sale of cattle for slaughter from open markets. “I feel there is a lot of talk in the country to respect each others feelings and several organisations demand this in the name of secularism. But why are they silent on the Kerala incident?” he asked at a public felicitation function organised by the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad last night. “Why are the people who staged vociferous protests over the incidents in DU and JNU silent on the issue?” the chief minister asked. During the beef fests held in Kerala to protest against the Centre’s ban, a Youth Congress worker Rijil Makulti and his accomplices had reportedly slaughtered a calf in full public view in Kannur and took out a march with the head of a buffalo. Adityanath, soon after coming to power, had ordered strict compliance of the ban on cow slaughter in the state, besides closing down of illegal slaughter houses being run in the state. He had categorically stated that his government will not allow cow slaughter and cow-smuggling at any cost. Kerala BJP president Kummanam Rajasekharan posted the video of the gory incident on twitter, calling it “cruelty at it peak” and said no normal person can behave in this manner. Later, police has registered the case against Makulti and his accomplices for slaughtering a calf in public during ‘beef fest’ organised across the state by the Congress and the Left on Sunday to protest the Centre’s ban. The Congress, however, distanced itself from the act, saying those behind the incident have no place in the party and have been suspended. In Kollam district, a group of Congress workers had cooked beef in front of the DCC office. District congress unit Chief Bindu Krishna had told reporters that “beef delicacy will be packed and sent to head post office for delivery to Modiji.” At Kochi, Kerala tourism and devaswom minister Kadakampally Surendran had participated in a ‘beef fest’, where bread and beef curry was served. The Centre has banned the sale and purchase of cattle from animal markets for slaughter and prohibited practices which are cruel to animals including painting of horns and putting ornaments or decorative materials on them. The environment ministry has notified the stringent ‘Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017’ under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.
Yogi Adityanath hails 3 years of Narendra Modi government, says ‘Swachh Bharat’ mission, ‘Skill India’ game-changer schemes
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for completing three years in power and said this is the first time that the country has got a government that is working for the people. He remembered the initiatives taken by the government in the last three years and praised them. Adityanath gave the example of ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ and ‘Swachh Bharat’ mission initiatives. Adityanath added that it was almost impossible to believe that a Prime Minister will come up with such schemes but Narendra Modi made it possible. During his speech, he also urged the party workers to help people who fall under the poverty line. The Uttar Pradesh chief minister hailed Modi-government for helping all sections of society. He also mentioned that it is commendable that government hasn’t been involved in any corrupt practices in last three years. He praised the Prime Minister for implementing schemes like ‘One Rank, One Pension’ that were in demand for the last few years. Talking about the youngsters of India, Adityanath said Indian youth is getting benefits from ‘Skill India’ scheme which is helping them get better jobs. Yesterday, Union Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh also congratulated Prime Minister for completing three years. “Looking back at three years, we stand sufficiently vindictive from the point of view that series of new initiatives, some of them path breaking have been taken with the nucleus as the poor and youth of the country. When we started off, there was a general sense of pessimism all over the country and people looked up at Prime Minister Modi with great deal of expectation,” Singh told.
