Yogi Adityanath takes police by surprise, inspects Lucknow’s Hazratganj police station

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday surprised policemen at Lucknow’s Hazratganj police station as he carried out an unplanned inspection. As he moved from one wing to the other, the policemen looked nervous. It is rare for a chief minister to visit a local police station. Yogi Adityanath had a discussion with senior police officers and tried to understand how the department works.

After the inspection, Yogi Adityanath said that it would not be the last inspection and more inspections in all the government departments would be carried out. He said the inspection was to understand how the police work. He said he discussed with the police how a cordial relationship between police and public can be forged. He also talked about improving the morale of police. He vowed that UP’s law and order would be made robust.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has taken the system by storm by taking swift actions on his poll promises including banning slaughterhouses, ensuring women’s safety, and cleanliness drive. Within 4 days of assuming power, the leader seems to be going all out to fix the ailing system. Yogi Adityanath has ordered government officials to not sit on files.

On Wednesday, Yogi Adityanath’s anti-Romeo squad started operating. The police of various districts acted on Yogi Adityanath’s order and rounded up miscreants who were misbehaving with girls. However, there were reports of moral policing. His opponents including Mayawati seemed to be in support of the move. However, she said that she would react after six months whether Yogi’s policies worked or not. Other leaders all voiced similar opinions. Congress party’s Renuka Chowdhary, however, said that the rights of the innocents need to be protected.

Yogi Adityanath had also inspected the secretariat on Wednesday and had got miffed after seeing dirty walls. He ordered officers to ensure that no ‘ghutkha’ and ‘pan masala’ would be allowed to chewed in government offices across the state.
