UP bureaucrats not paying heed to CM Yogi Adityanath's orders
Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh bureaucracy is so ignorant of its duties that it doesn’t even pay heed to the directives given by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath himself. After imposing ban on Samajwadi Pension scheme, the UP government had ordered to submit the probe report into the matter within a month, but seems like the concerned officers did not take his words seriously.
UP CM Yogi Adityanath had ordered the probe into the matter on April 12. More than a month has already passed and the Chief Minister's Office is yet to receive the investigation report of the pension scheme, which was being run by previous Samajwadi Party government in UP.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government had ordered to check if the people who were being benefited due to the Samajwadi Pension scheme really needed it or not. It may be mentioned that the scheme promised Rs 500 per month to the poor families of the state.
Apart from the pension scheme, the Yogi government had also ordered to check into the allegations of irregularities in beautification of JPNIC and old Lucknow. It has been two months since the probe was ordered but the investigators are yet to reach to any conclusion.
Over 45 lakh people of the state were benefited because of the Samajwadi Pension scheme. The previous government had announced to increase the pension amount by Rs 50 every year, up to Rs 750.
