CM orders to remove 'Samajwadi' from all government schemes

UP to set up 6 AIIMS like institutes, 25 medical colleges in next 5 years Don't take law into your hands: Yogi Adityanath warns people protesting against shifting of liquor shops

The minister clarified that no welfare schemes would be closed by the Yogi Adityanath government but would simply be renamed.

Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government has chose to drop the prefix "Samajwadi" from the Poorvanchal Expressway in a political move that is likely to trigger a name-changing spree in the state.

The previous Samajwadi Party government led by Akhilesh Yadav would typically add the word "Samajwadi" to the development schemes in the state.

The Congress had also objected to the use of party's name for the ambulances provided to the state government under the National Rural Health Scheme, saying that they had been given by the Centre and state funds were not used in their procurement. "Central schemes will be known as "Kendriya Yojana", he said.

Earlier, the BJP Government had made a decision to not distribute over 60 lakh ration cards printed by the Akhilesh Yadav Government as they featured a photograph of the former Chief Minister.

The previous Akhilesh Yadav government had to bear the Pay Commission burden for only three months, but it will burn a hole in the pocket of the Yogi government for the whole of 2017-18, and also in the years ahead. The salt distributed through the PDS was known as "Samajwadi namak". It also declared that ration cards carrying Akhilesh' picture would no longer be acceptable. Over four crore ration cards that carried Mr Yadav's photograph and thousands of school bags awaiting distribution have now been dumped.

Directions were given in a meeting chaired by Adityanath earlier this week to the state officials to bring out a Yoga education programme in every school in the state.
