Yogi Adityanath orders probe into SP’s urban projects
They had come across several instances where payments were made but works were completed only on paper, not on ground.
Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath has ordered an inquiry look into public works executed under an urban scheme by the previous Samajwadi Party administration.
The decision came on Sunday after the chief minister expressed his unhappiness with the quality of works carried out under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM).
The works that will be looked into include drinking water, pipeline and overhead water tank project in Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Lok Sabha constituency. The Varanasi commissioner has 15 days to submit a report.
A crackdown on crime and corruption the biggest promise the BJP made to the people of Uttar Pradesh, where it was voted to power with a brute majority last month.
From Azam Khan, Adityanath has now tasked his urban development minister Suresh Khanna to head the probe team. (With Agency Inputs)
