Yogi Adityanath drops 'Samajwadi' for 'Mukhyamantri' from government schemes



The Yogi Adityanath government has decided to remove the word 'Samajwadi' from all government schemes. The word will be replaced with 'Mukhyamantri'.

- Uttar Pradesh's Yogi Adityanath regime has decided to do away with the word 'Samajwadi' from all government schemes and replace it with 'Mukhyamantri'.
"Samajwadi word will be dropped from Uttar Pradesh government schemes. Mukhyamantri yojna will be used now," Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Siddharth Nath Singh told reporters in Lukno after a marathon meeting which continued till 1 am today.
The decision comes days after the Yogi Adityanath government decided not to distribute some 60 lakh ration cards printed by the previous Akhilesh Yadav government.
These ration cards have photograph of the then Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. But, the Yogi Adityanath government has decided to roll back all the ration cards having Yadav's photographs.
MAJOR DECISIONS TAKEN DURING ADITYANATH GOVT MEETING
Following the top level meeting, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath directed officials to ensure 24 hour electricity to every district headquarters. Apart from that villages and tehsils are to be provided uniterrupted electricity for 18 hours. A meeting between Union Power Minister Piyush Goyal and Uttar Pradesh Minister Srikant Sharma in this regard is scheduled to be held soon.
The Yogi Adityanath government has also decided to remove the word 'Samajwadi' from state government schemes. The Akhilesh government had named many schemes highlighting his party's name. Scheme names like Samajawadi Pension Yojana, Samajwadi Ambulance Sewa, Samajwadi Smartphone Yojana will now be prefixed with the word 'Mukhyamantri'.
The Uttar Pradesh government has also given green signal to the long pending Jewar Airport project. The project was approved by the Majawati government, however, it was stalled as the Akhilesh Yadav government wanted a full functional airport in Agra rather than Jewar, some 55 km from Noida.
Yogi Adityanath also aims to replicate the Gujarat model of development in Uttar Pradesh. Sources said the CM is eager to launch an app featuring government's development schemes and other policies. The CM has also directed officials to give special attention to issues concerning Bundelkhand.
Ever since taking charge as the CM, Yogi Adityanath has held several meetings with top officials asking them for a blueprint for future course of action of their respective departments. In the first Cabinet meeting held earlier this week, keeping the BJP's poll promise, Adityanath waived off farmers' loan of up to Rs 1 lakh. The next Cabinet meeting is scheduled for April 11.
