Gorakhpur (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Sept.29 (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday said that his government is trying to give a new identity to the state and maintained that six months after coming to power, change and progress is visible.

"The BJP has completed six months in Uttar Pradesh. Six months is not a long time for a government, but still the path and intentions of the government are now clear," he told ANI in an exclusive interview.

"With development and reliability, we have always moved forward. The government has started a new brand of politics in the state. We have tried to give a new identity to Uttar Pradesh which was earlier known for crimes, jungle raj, dynasty politics, casteism, and corruption," he added.

On the law and order front, anti-romeo squad was formed to keep a vigil to check incidents of harassing.

Adityanath's anti-romeo squad was a major hit among locals, who think that the step will surely take down criminals targeting women.

Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh government ordered strict implementation of liquor ban at religious places of Vrindavan in Mathura, Ayodhya in Faizabad, Chitrakoot Naimisharanya in Sitapur, Deva Shareef in Barabanki and Devband in Saharanpur districts.

Yogi Adityanath had said that any negligence in this regard will be taken up seriously and officials responsible for it will be punished. (ANI)
