Lucknow: As soon as the dates of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections were announced, banner posters started being removed in the state capital Lucknow. Employees of the Municipal Corporation removed the political banners placed on the crossroads and corners on the side of the roads.

The poster of Bharatiya Janata Party at Hazratganj intersection in Lucknow has been removed by the Municipal Corporation team. Apart from this, a campaign to remove political posters has been started across the district.

The model code of conduct has come into force in Uttar Pradesh as soon as the dates for the assembly elections are announced. The political machinery has been deactivated, so now the government machinery will be answerable to the Election Commission.

Political interference on the work of officers in the districts will stop. Simply put, there will be no interference of the Chief Minister’s Office to take any decision. The transfer of any officer will be done only after the order of the Election Commission.

Political interference on the bureaucracy has stopped as soon as the model code of conduct is implemented in Uttar Pradesh. The DM and SP posted in the district will now work without interference or pressure from any honorable one. The direct accountability of DM and SP will be to the Central Election Commission.

The DM, SP, Commissioner of all the districts will now send the report to the DGP, Chief Secretary, ADG Law and Order and Additional Chief Secretary Home. That report will be sent to the Central Election Commission through the Chief Electoral Officer of Uttar Pradesh.

The decision to transfer any officer in the district can also be taken only after the approval of the Central Election Commission.
