Yogi Adityanath, the new chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, understands the importance of spending in a sensible manner and he has shown respect to the hard-earned money of tax-payers by taking the decision of distributing school bags which have images of former CM Akhilesh Yadav and SP Supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Nearly 35,000 school bags with images of the father-son duo were manufactured just before SP lost the state elections and the public of UP gave BJP a chance to rule the state. The decision has been taken, keeping in mind the extra expenditure that will take place if these bags are not distributed and new ones are manufactured with BJP mark. As per officials,
“Yogi Adityanath didn’t want the waste of public money just for ‘political ego’.”
CM Yogi wishes that these bags should reach students before the new academic session starts.
Sources have disclosed that after these bags are distributed, new bags will be manufactured and they won’t contain anybody’s name, as Adityanath has given instructions that from now on, no scheme will be named after any person. On the contrary, “Mukhya Mantri Yojana” or “Uttar Pradesh Yojana” will be printed on the new bags.
Undoubtedly, this is a great decision as CM Yogi has shown maturity by giving taxpayer’s money more importance than “political ego.”
However, SP leaders feel that Yogi’s gesture is being overrated and they have a reason behind it too. When Akhilesh government came to power in 2012, they didn’t remove Mayawati’s statues from parks and instead, passed orders to protect them.
