Uttar Pradesh chief minister Aditya Nath Yogi today asked all BJP office bearers and public representatives not to undertake any contractual work and instead monitor them for effective execution.
Yogi said BJP's unprecedented win the recent Assembly elections had only increased the responsibilities of the party and its workers. "No office bearer of the party or any public representative should undertake any contractual work (thekedaari). They should rather monitor them. And, if they find any discrepancy, they can inform me, so that action could be taken immediately against the guilty," he said. Addressing people at the BJP's regional office on the second day of his Gorakhpur visit, the chief minister said: "After victory, a number of important works have to be accomplished. The people of the state have reposed their faith in us, and the onus is on us to meet their expectations, while ensuring accountability of our actions."
Yogi also laid stress on sense of responsibility and accountibility among his ministerial colleagues. "I am the CM. (Surya Pratap) Shahi ji is Cabinet minister. But the post of CM or cabinet minister is not meant for flaunting. In fact, it is an indicator of one's responsibility and accountability towards the public, which elected you with an overwhelming majority," he said, pointing towards some ministers present there. The Uttar Pradesh chief minister, who is still the local MP, urged the party to gear up for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
"In the next two years, you have to work tirelessly, irrespective of the fact that there is sunshine, rain or biting cold. Efforts should be made to ensure that the welfare schemes of the Centre percolate to the last strata of the society, and needy people are able to avail its benefits," he said, amidst a thunderous applause from the audience.
The Uttar Pradesh chief minister today showered accolades on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah and party workers for the party's massive victory in the state Assembly polls. "The welfare schemes initiated by the Prime Minister, the brilliant poll strategy of BJP chief Amit Shah and the ground work done by party workers helped us to come to power after a gap of 15 years," he said while addressing public at the party's regional office here. Out of the total 403 Assembly seats, BJP and its allies won 325 seats in the polls earlier this month.
Boosting the confidence of his party workers, he said that virtually every worker of Goraksh Praant (Gorakhpur region) can work as a chief minister. "When the UP Assembly elections were going on, at one point of time, we felt as if that our innings is trembling. I got a call from party chief Amit Shah. I went to Delhi to meet him. I was told by him that the party must bag 40 out of the 62 seats in the region. When the results were announced, we emerged victorious on 46 seats," Yogi said. (PTI)
