LUCKNOW: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath completed a week in office on Sunday. He might not have convened his first cabinet meeting so far but his actions have already set the agenda for all in the dispensation. In a reiteration of his working style, the CM vowed to slog for 18-20 hours a day with a positive frame of mind in order to convert Uttar Pradesh into a dream State where everyone would get an equal opportunity to grow and prosper.

At a BJP workers’ meet in Gorakhpur on Sunday, Yogi sent across a terse message for the State bureaucracy cautioning the babus about the days of heavy workload ahead. “Those who are ready to toil with me in my endeavour are welcome, others will have to chart their own course,” said the CM while interacting with party workers.

“I may be the Chief Minister, but it is a responsibility than a fortune for me,” said Yogi. He added that power always brought accountability. Foreseeing a repeat of 2014 for BJP in the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections in UP, Yogi said he had his task cut out for him.

“We have to rid the state of potholes (on roads), corruption, lawlessness, and hooliganism. We have to mitigate the ‘darkness’ too,” he avowed referring to supply of power to all without any discrimination. It was a rhetoric of PM Modi during the election campaign which had kicked up a lot of dust.

“The bigger the victory, higher is the responsibility. We have to work tirelessly in all conditions,” he stated. The CM assured the people of Uttar Pradesh that he was just a message away from them in case they came across any wrong. “Just SMS me and see how the action is taken,” said Yogi.

Officers were asked to monitor development works and keep people’s representative duly informed. He dared plunderers and mafia to leave the State or be prepared to go to jail. Yogi also committed himself and his government to the welfare of the poor and deprived by reaffirming that he won’t let a single person sleep hungry in the State during the BJP rule.

“In two months’ time, we will show how governance is done,” Yogi said, reminding people that his government would take care of all sections of society, be it the marriage of poor girls or cent per cent purchase of wheat from farmers.

He urged BJP workers to commit themselves for the people’s cause and fulfill their aspirations and expectations from the new government. He warned party men and people’s representatives against getting involved in any government contract or interfering in government tenders.

To ensure transparency, he asked them to restrict themselves to monitoring and send a report of the ministers concerned, with a copy to him.
