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.
