On his first day in office, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday directed all his ministers to declare their income sources and assets – movable and immovable, to his secretary and to the party within 15 days deadline.
A day after swearing in as the new UP CM, Adityanath said curbing corruption will be his government's main agenda.
The government would fulfill all the promises made in the Lok Kalyan Sankalp Patra, the BJP’s election manifesto, Adityanath said.
The Hindutva hardliner also said his government will work for all sections of the society without any discrimination regarding religion, caste and creed.
“This government will be dedicated to public welfare, and will work equally for all sections of society without any discrimination. The government and administration will be made sensitive and answerable,” Adityanath said.
Earlier in the day, Adityanath met with the state police chief, expressing concern over the killing of BSP leader Mohammad Shami who was shot dead by some assailants on bike in Allahabad on Sunday night.
The 44-year-old priest-politician was on Sunday sworn in as new UP Chief Minister at Kanshiram Smriti Upvan in Lucknow in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah.
