Chief minister Adityanath Yogi has asked senior officials to chalk out clear guidelines for anti-Romeo squads to ensure that the police did not act against boys and girls hanging out together with consent. 

He said strict action should be taken against those involved in acid attacks and senior officers should review such cases with district magistrates and the district police chiefs on a day-to-day basis. 

Yogi was presiding over a high-level meeting convened to review the performance of departments in Lucknow on Friday.

He said the state government was receiving complaints about illegal mining from many districts. Such a situation was not acceptable, he said, asking the principal secretaries of the mining and home departments to check illegal mining immediately. 

He said the officers should make security arrangements for the state secretariat on the pattern of the parliament secretariat and cancel the entry passes issued unnecessarily. 

He asked officers to install the biometric system and CCTV cameras for marking attendance in state government offices to check the tendency of abstaining from work.

Observing that the attendance of doctors in government hospitals was not satisfactory, he asked officers to take immediate steps in this connection.

The chief minister referred to the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana to make his point that the state government’s non-cooperation in the past towards such schemes had deprived the people of the state of their benefits.

The work for implementation of the scheme should be transferred from the urban development department to housing development department, he said. A scheme for allotment of houses to those not having any house should be worked out and incomplete houses constructed under the Kanshiram Housing Scheme should also be completed, he said. 

He also referred to the Union government’s scheme to provide generic medicines at cheaper rates and said so far only 150 shops had been opened in the state under this scheme. He said a process to open at least 3,000 such shops in the state should be immediately initiated.

He said the departments should do away with ad hocism and work out a transparent system of functioning to root out corruption. He said the state government offices should be properly maintained to ensure that visitors reaching there felt good and got relief. All the departments should implement the citizens charter to bring out qualitative improvement in their working, he said.

The CM has asked departments to set targets for the next 100 days.

He also said registration of contractors having mafia links should be cancelled and a transparent system should be put in place.

Any political pressure should be ignored and FIR should be registered for any wrongdoing, he said.
