Lucknow: After a week assuming office and without a single cabinet meeting, chief minister Adityanath Yogi has taken 50 decisions that have drawn mixed response and produced varied results.
For the past few days, the decisions that have turned into current issues are strict implementation of ban on illegal slaughterhouses and formation of anti-Romeo squads. The former decision has checked unhygienic conditions in dense market places, while strict policing to ensure there is no eve-teasing has visibly instilled more confidence in girls and women, at the cost of putting officials in an overdrive.
The directive to ensure officials and ministers reach office by 10am and installation of biometric attendance at government offices has come to the relief of public visiting these places for work. Ban on use of paan masala and polythene in government offices has drawn appreciation.
The grant for Mansarovar pilgrimage has been increased from Rs 50,000 to Rs 1 lakh, along with directions for construction of Mansarovar Bhavan near New Delhi for pilgrims.
