New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is going to launch a whirlwind “feedback tour” across the State which will start from 16 June, a State government source said.

The chief minister would be visiting all important districts where he would hold ‘chaupal‘ meetings with villagers and make spot inspections of police stations, hospitals, tehsils and primary schools.

Yogi would also review development work being done in remote towns of the State. The Chief Minister could even have night stays in the villages for open interaction with villagers.

As Yogi prepares for his tour, the State bureaucracy, particularly the officials of the district administration, appear restless. The reason is Yogi’s recent announcement that “he would not spare any officer found slack in his work”.

Top sources in the Uttar Pradesh government said that Yogi could make a surprise visit to a tehsil or a police station without even informing the senior officials of a district administration.

Meanwhile, Chief Secretary Anoop Chandra Pandey has reportedly instructed that officers nominated as the nodal officer for each district should take stock of the situation at ground zero. The nodal officers have been told to ensure that no complaints are pending related to the procurement of wheat or payments related to sugarcane.

The Chief Minister is also expected to review schemes introduced in rural areas by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“Tehsildars, patwaris, pradhans and beat constables are busy verifying the details of Central government schemes such as ‘Ujjawala’, ‘Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi’ or ‘Ijjat Ghar’ in their respective areas,” said a Chief Development Officer(CDO) posted in western Uttar Pradesh.

The Commissioners and Deputy Inspectors General of Police (DIGs) will be accompanying the Chief Minister in the Mandal reviews. Sources said that Prime Minister Modi has suggested Yogi clean up the administrative machinery at the district level so that the schemes of social sectors are effectively implemented.

On Monday, Yogi had a brainstorming session with Director General of Police, Home Secretary and other key officials relating to a spurt in heinous crimes targeting children. He also reviewed the progress of the sensational murder of a girl child in Aligarh.

Sources said after the meeting, Yogi has summoned all the DMs and SPs of the State to Lucknow wherein he would review the law and order situation before beginning his feedback tour.
