Yogi Adityanath warns land mafias
On his two-days visit to Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday warned land mafias to return grabbed property voluntarily or be prepared to face stern action. He directed revenue officials to finalise demarcation of land within three months in pending dispute cases.
The CM also held a review meeting with district officials here on Saturday and asked them to work efficiently warning that laxity would not be tolerated. Asserting that he was well aware about the functioning of government officials, the chief minister asked them to act honestly and stop harassment of the poor and the weaker ensuring justice for them.
Yogi issued a stern warning to land mafia, who have grabbed the land of poor and weaker people using muscle power and influence, and said that the properties should voluntarily be returned to the rightful owners or else his government would initiate action after two months in which they (land mafias) may lose their property.
Attacking opposition parties, Adityanath alleged that land grabbing had thrived in the state in the past 15 years and said that such elements should mend their ways or be ready to face stern action. He claimed that law and order was ruined under the previous SP and BSP regimes but would now prevail under the BJP rule.
