Yogi Rule 2.0 begins with 100 day plan
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has started work in his second consecutive term with a speed that has dazzled many, including those in the government. Right after the day he took office of oath, he held a meeting of officials and directed them to become accountable towards the people of the state.In keeping with his objective of establishing an administration “of the people, by the people, for the people,” all departments have been asked to present 100-day, 6-month, and yearly action plans.
This is for the first time that such a professional approach towards governance has been seen in the state. Not only this, all officers have been told to keep in mind the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Lok Sankalp Patra (manifesto) to remember what needs to be done.
The officials will be presenting these action plans in front of the Council of Ministers, according to the department-wise timetable, which will be announced soon. In the meeting, Yogi had said: “It is really important that all the officers memorise every point of the Lok Kalyan Sankalp Patra announced by the Bharatiya Janata Party in the election campaign and start working towards achieving the goals,” adding “It is my target to make Uttar Pradesh the No. 1 state in the country and the state’s economy the No. 1 economy. The roadmap for the future should be prepared with teamwork and inter-departmental coordination. For this work ‘Team UP’ will have to be engaged with full commitment.”
In an introductory meeting with ministers, the chief minister thanked the people of the state for reposing their faith in nationalism, safety, good governance and development. Observing that honesty and transparency are extremely important in public life, the chief minister said the focus should be on performance-based work.
The ministers should also keep a special watch on their private staff. They should visit their districts as in-charge ministers, do physical verification of development work and also take feedback from the people, he said.
The chief minister added that a special programme be organised for the ministers at IIM-Lucknow to give speed to the developmental works, the statement said.
As Yogi handed over the 100-day agenda to ministers; the government has put on hold all new car and furniture purchases for ministers. Also, the ministers have reportedly been instructed to inform the Chief Minister if they wish they to travel outside UP, and seek prior permission to do so.
The ministers have also been asked to get to work immediately and concentrate on picking up pending work.
It is Yogi’s commitment to make the state a $1 trillion economy, under which ten ‘primary sectors’ have to be identified. To ensure proper functioning and implementation of all the sectors and schemes, the Chief Secretary will be doing weekly reviews while CM Yogi himself will do fortnightly reviews.
He said that in the next five years, “our competition will be with the works of our own first term. Now, our competition with ourselves will start to further strengthen good governance. In such a situation, the establishment of good governance will have to be carried forward with more strength,” he said.
Some instructions issued by the Chief Minister are:
All officers and employees attend the office on time and complete the tasks effectively.
Files should not remain pending and should be disposed of within the stipulated time frame.
The reply to the letters received from the Government of India should be compulsorily sent within a week of receipt of the letter.
The nodal officers, along with the minister in charge of their district, should visit the district every month and check the implementation of the schemes on the spot.
