Deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya was accorded a warm welcome on his maiden visit to the city after declaration of assembly poll results and formation of Bharatiya Janata Party government in the state under the leadership of CM Aditya Nath Yogi.

On his way to circuit house, Maurya was welcomed by the BJP activists, who gathered at several places between airport and Circuit House, which affected traffic movement on the busy GT road for nearly four hours on Sunday morning.

After reaching Circuit House, the dy CM met party leaders and activists due to which the meeting with administrative officials got delayed. Excited supporters and party workers, in trying to get their presence noticed, created chaos and damaged glass panes of a door besides a few flower pots and wall painting at Circuit House.

Later, interacting with a section of media, the deputy chief minister assured improvement in law and order in the state besides strict action against corrupt officials. He said that officials of Public Works Department (PWD) had been given June 15 as deadline for improving condition of roads. In case of dereliction of duty, suspension would not be the only punishment but FIR would be lodged against such officials and would be sent to jail.

Referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s appeal in his programme ‘Mann ki baat’ on radio for saving petrol-diesel once a week, Maurya said his government would strictly follow the advice.
