Amid a sharp spike in crime and worsening law and order situation across Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is set to launch a whirlwind "feedback tour" of the state, starting June 16, state government sources said.
Yogi would be visiting all important districts where he would hold 'chaupal' meetings with villagers and make spot inspections of police stations, hospitals, tehsils and primary schools. He would also review development work being done in remote towns of the state. The Chief Minister could even have night stays in the villages for open interaction with villagers. As Yogi prepares for his tour, the state bureaucracy, particularly the officials of the district administration, appear restless. The reason is Yogi's recent announcement that "he would not spare any officer found slack in his work".
Top sources in the Uttar Pradesh government said that Yogi could make a surprise visit to a tehsil or a police station without even informing the senior officials of a district administration. "The element of surprise in Chief Minister's visit to thana and tehsils is giving sleepless nights to officers who are involved in the field work. They fear any slackness on their part could result in action not less than a suspension," said a Sub-Divisional Magistrate posted in Aligarh.
