Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath well known for his Zero Tolerance for lawless mafia in Uttar Pradesh directed instantaneous action to free property of a person illegally occupied by a land mafioso.
While meeting general public in a Janta Darshan at Gorakhpur Mutt, he received a complaint that a mafioso had grabbed land, he gave strict instructions to the officials to take immediate action and free the land.
The officials swung into action instantly and submitted the report within an hour. Yogi not only ensured the property is instantly freed from illegal possession of mafia but also warned the officers to take actions on such matters in war footing, so that he doesn’t hear of such complaints in future.
Rajendra Yadav of Khoa Mandi locality complained to CM Yogi Adityanath, during a Janata Darshan programme at the Gorakhnath temple in Gorakhpur about the illegal possession of his land by the land sharks.
Yadav complained that, “The land was registered in my name in 1983 and it was in our occupancy since then. However, a land mafia got the land illegally registered in his name and also demolished the house on it by misleading officials.”
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on hearing the complaint berated the ineptness of the officials and said to the surprise of everyone present there, “I remember that about 10 years back I myself had gone there and after getting the house vacated, Rajendra was given the possession. How come the mafia was again given the possession without examining the facts and the house has been demolished too?”
Within an hour of the UP CM’s strict directions, the officials of the district administration, police and Revenue department reached the spot with a JCB and demolished the illegal under-construction house. The officials also submitted an action taken report to the chief minister.
It is noteworthy that Yogi met about 200 people during the Janata Darshan programme in the morning during his Gorakhpur visit and listened to their complaints. Yogi assured the general people of speedy redressal to the complaints filed for which he issued very clear instructions to the officials to take swift actions without miring cases in red tapism.
