Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said before 2017 the youth of Uttar Pradesh was forced to hold demonstrations and fight for their rights as corruption prevailed at every step of recruitment, but today, the government’s transparent work mechanism has removed every question that used to be raised regarding the state.
The CM was addressing an event after distributing appointment letters to 795 newly selected candidates in various departments as a part of Mission Rozgar through a fair and transparent recruitment process by the UP Public Service Commission and UP Subordinate Services Selection Commission.
He said, “Right from assuming power in 2017, we worked with full commitment to empower the deserving youth. The transparency and honesty in our work mechanism have cleansed UP’s tarnished image. Earlier, youth had to fight for their rights, today, without any discrimination or recommendations, candidates are being selected and recruited in a time-bound manner.”
Yogi said within the last six years, the administrative team, along with the public representatives and the government has worked to provide 100 percent benefits of the schemes of the central and state governments to the general public and its results are also being seen.
He said, “Toilets were provided to more than 2.61 crore people, houses were given to the poor, free cylinders were given under the Ujjwala Yojana and benefits under every scheme were provided to the needy without any discrimination.”
The CM emphasised that working in UP, the most populous state of the country, is a matter of pride for any officer or personnel of the country as it enables them to work at any place or region across the country with the same ease.
Stating examples of honest officers, he also urged the newly recruited candidates to perform their duties with utmost sensitivity, commitment and integrity, ensuring public welfare. “Honesty and dedication will make you go a long way and achieve great heights,” he said.
Criticising previous governments, Yogi said, “When the government’s intentions are flawed and malicious corruption exists at and every step of selection and recruitment. When we took over the reins in March 2017, posts were lying vacant in every department. We completed the recruitment process of 1.64 lakh personnel in UP Police itself in 6 years. The absence of adequate police force resulted in a compromised law and order system earlier.”
Continuing attack on the previous government, he saying, “Due to corruption in recruitment, unfortunately, some youth had to commit suicide. Nepotism was prevalent. Non-deserving people were appointed as the chairman of the commission. Lists were made and recruitment was purely biased.”
The CM said, “You all are fortunate enough to get selected during the tenure of an honest government. You must discharge your duties with the same honesty and dedication and become the link between the government and the public in the best possible way.”
He said, “I expect all of you to set a standard in front of the people with your work mechanism. You have been appointed after going through a transparent, fair selection process, the same honesty and loyalty should be towards the government as it will not only boost the state’s development but also will lead to increased public faith in the government,”
