Recentlly, Mr Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited, Varanasi where the noticeable element was this that he outrightlly appreciated and endorsed his dreams by saying Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh is translating on ground.This is palpable that Yogi Adityanath has always remained in the limelight ever since he was sworn-in as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister in March this year. With his government completing six months in office, Adityanath released a detailed ‘white paper’ on the working of previous government in the state, his own government policies and achievements since March. While the Adityanath-led BJP government claims to have fulfilled most of the promises, it made during the election campaign, the opposition has stepped up the attack on the ruling party by claiming that have outnumbered the hits. If we go back, we would be encountering several remarkable steps which was taken under his leadership. In his first state Cabinet meeting, the Adityanathled government waived off farm loans to the tune of Rs 36,000 crore. Described as populist and a quick fix measure to win brownie points, the move is believed to have benefitted around `86 lakh small and marginal farmers. Four days into office, the Adityanath-led Opportunities for the completion of six-month term. Information about the achievements of his government in the press conference, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath government launched a crackdown on illegal slaughter houses, prompting strong reactions from the meat traders. Besides unlicensed private slaughter houses, many government-owned slaughterhouses too closed down due to license issues, leading to a severe shortage of meat in the state. People from the Kasai community and meat traders were the ones who were severely hit by this decision.

Adityanath installed the anti-romeo squad soon after he came to the office with an aim to curb the incidents of eve-teasing, public attacks on women, molestation, harassment and rape. With the government facing charges of moral policing, Adityanath had to order the squads to desist from harassing innocent citizens. Yogi Adityanath directed the ministers in Uttar Pradesh to remove the red beacons from their cars, declaring that no politician should enjoy a VIP status. He also urged all ministers to reveal their net worth to the Chief Minister Secretariat within the fortnight. The Special Task Force of the state’s law enforcement agencies unearthed many fuel stations that were duping customers by filling their tanks with less fuel than what they paid. To make profit, the pump owners used to tamper with the metres of the fuel dispensing machines. The government-led force inspected several dozen fuel outlets in the state and sealed the fuel-dispensing machines that were found to be rigged. However, the government slowed down in terms of its action against such people as pump owners threatened to go on strike. Subsequently, the government was severely censured by the Allahabad High Court for adopting a lenient approach on the owners. Instead of closing down the fuel stations, the government only closed down the machines that were tampered. The state government also announced that it will launch inquiries into projects cleared during the previous regimes of Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati.These included the Gomti River Front project, the Agra-Lucknow Expressway, construction of Lohia Path in Lucknow etc. Adityanath had promised pothole-free roads after registering a landslide victory in the state assembly elections. He also ordered setting up of a Road Construction Department but that met with protests from workers of the Public Works Department.Now, only time will tell whether these promises will be fulfilled.Sending a strong warning to real estate developers over irregularities in the real estate sector by Yogi Adityanath, the rift between buyers and builders is widening and to bridge the gap the government needs to take stern step.
