AIR Staff

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision on making Yogi Adityanath, the 21st Chief Minister of the densely Indian State, Uttar Pradesh has drawn in the leftist criticism from the various people, though he was largely supported in the home state.

From the very beginning, Yogi was broadly considered as the religious leader, rather than a secular protagonist. Putting aside the theories and statistics, however, Yogi ascended the throne of the Chief Minister of UP.

And ever since he has taken the oath of Uttar Pradesh’s Chief Minister, Yogi has been taking decisions at a very fast pace. Not only this, he also ensures that these decisions are implemented as well.

On Thursday, Yogi shocked the police officials of Hazratganj Police Station, Lucknow, by paying a surprise visit and spending 30 minutes there. DGP Javeed Ahmad, IG Satish Ganesh, and SSP Manzil Saini were also present with the CM during the inspection.

The Home portfolio has been kept by Yogi with him and he told this to media persons,

I have come here to inspect as to how the rule of law is enforced in the state and gauge the morale of the police, and see what effective action can be taken in this regard.

He added,

The rule of law will be established in the state and government will not hesitate in taking whatever steps are required for people’s welfare.

The CM started the inspection with the office room of Inspector Incharge. Then he went to CO office, Ganj Kotwali office and women police station. He also had a conversation with the officials of cyber crime cell apart from visiting CO crime and CCTNS office.

While inspecting the women police station, the CM had a discussion with the top officials regarding the facilities provided to women police officers. He asked them to improve the conditions and draw a blueprint regarding the increase in the women workforce.

The CM maintained that the relations between the police and the public should be cordial and police should behave with the public in a good manner. He also inspected the facility of sitting and drinking water for the public.

On his visit to the cyber crime cell, Yogi asked the officers to give a presentation next week to explain about their preparations for dealing cybercrime in the future, as technology is getting advanced regularly.

Yogi also emphasized on the need of cleanliness in the police stations as well as praised the Hazratganj police station for maintaining cleanliness and good atmosphere.

He also gave a word of caution to the officials, saying that it was not the last inspection but just a beginning. In order to send a strong message that indiscipline won’t be tolerated, more than 100 policemen have been suspended by the Adityanath government.

The majority of suspensions took place in Ghaziabad, Noida, and Meerut while in Lucknow, seven inspectors had been slapped with the suspension. These suspensions were made as a few days back, DGP Javeed Ahmad gave instructions to find the “black sheep.”

Rahul Srivastava, the PRO of UP Police, said,

More than 100 policemen, mostly constables, have been suspended as per the directives of the DGP to identify the black sheep and take exemplary action against them.

The CM has already banned pan masala, gutka, tobacco products etc. in the government offices after he saw stains on the walls.
