Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday asked the police officials of the state to change their working style in order to create fear in the minds of criminals and anti-social elements.
Encouraging the police officials to undertake foot patrolling for a few kilometres along with their subordinates, the Chief Minister said that they should put good policing in place.
The Chief Minister directed police officials to prepare an elaborate work plan at the earliest and ensure that good policing is put in place. He also laid emphasis on field visits to know the ground reality.
"If the police officials take out some time from their busy schedule and undertake foot patrolling for a few kilometres along with their subordinates, then it will instill a feeling of safety and reassurance among the public," Yogi Adityanath said during a review meeting with the police officers of the state.
“If the department incorporates a change in its style of working then it would create fear in the mind of criminals and anti-social elements,” he added.
The Chief Minister also discussed the incident of attack on some African students in Greater Noida and the crude bomb explosion in Sant Kabir Nagar.
Adityanath asked police men to "identify the black sheep in their department who are acting in collusion with criminals and anti-social elements", and emphasised on strengthening "internal" discipline between the police officials and subordinates.
The CM directed the police officials to ensure that their homes and offices are clean.
