Girls safe in Yogi raj..CM activates anti Romeo squad on day 1

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday directed senior officials of the state to prepare a roadmap for "good governance and transparency" for all departments.

Presiding over a meeting of the officials, Yogi handed them the Bharatiya Janata Party's vision document -- Sankalp Patra -- for the 2017 state assembly elections, and asked the bureaucrats to study the document and ensure its "speedy and complete implementation".

Officials present at the meeting told IANS that the "maiden meeting with the new CM was good" though it had its "share of anxious moments". They pointed out that they knew very little about the new Chief Minister, who is known for his firebrand Hindutva-oriented politics.

Yogi also asked policemen to ensure that law and order situation in the state improved within a week.

He referred to the late-night killing of a BSP leader in Allahabad and directed the Director General of Police (DGP) to bring the guilty to book. The Chief Minister was slated to attend a high tea hosted by Governor Ram Naik at Raj Bavan for the new ministers.

Yogi also directed officials to activate anti-Romeo squad across the state. BJP's Sankalp Patra had said, "In Uttar Pradesh, every college would be provided with the anti-Romeo squad. Our girls would be safeguarded. These anti-Romeo squad would allow the girls to study without fear in college campuses.”
