Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday directed his ministers to declare their assets within 3 months including properties owned by them and their families and asked IAS, IPS, and PCS officials to put the similar details online.
He also said that the ministers' family members should not intervene in the government work after getting complaints that the families of some ministers intervene in the dept work.
The CM Yogi said that the IAS, IPS, and the Provincial Civil Service officers should also declare their and their family members' properties and make them available on an online portal for the public. He said that "For a healthy democracy, the responsible conduct of public representatives is very important. According to this spirit, all the honorable ministers should make a public declaration of all movable and immovable assets of themselves and their family members within a period of 3 months.
He further said that “The code of conduct prescribed for the ministers should be followed in compliance with the provisions of the Representation of the People Act in letter and spirit”. "All ministers should ensure that there is no interference of their family members in the government and departmental work. We have to set an example by our conduct," he said.
Detailed presentation by all the departments for the next 100 days, six months, and a five-year work plan has been completed, the CM said. Now it’s time to implement it on the ground, he added. The CM directed all departments to guide officers to ensure the completion of projects in a set time frame.
He said that under the guidance of the PM Modi, we all strive to fulfill the resolution of 'Antyodaya'." The CM has formed 18 groups, each headed by a cabinet minister, to tour the entire state and hold meetings with the local leaders and prominent people across districts to know people's issues. There are 18 divisions in the state with 75 districts under them.
Yogi said that during these 3-day visits, each team will have to stay at least 24 hours in a district to meet various stakeholders to know their feedback. He also suggested holding a 'Jan Chaupal' for a direct dialogue with the common man", as well as conducting surprise checks to know the status of development works in blocks and tehsils. BJP Ministers were told to hold "sahbhoj" (feast) in Dalit localities and slums also during their stays.
