Just days after assuming office, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has started delivering on the promises made in the election manifesto. One of the promises was the initialization of anti-romeo squads, which was launched today in various cities in Uttar Pradesh. Various anti-romeo squads of the police could be seen in action today, as they rounded up the ‘romeos’. Some were questioned; others were warned, reported to their parents, or even administered instant justice, by making them do sit-ups. It may be recalled that in local parlance ‘romeos’ is used to describe people who have a tendency to stalk and harass women.
Meanwhile, in another development, Yogi Adityanath has banned the use of pan masala and tobacco in all government buildings in the State. The move came after Adityanath noticed betel stains on the walls of a government building. Use of plastic products has also been banned in government buildings in the State. The CM’s office was also quick to respond to an alleged case of molestation in Kanpur’s Kalyanpur area on Holi. When the matter was escalated to the CM’s office, Adityanath immediately ordered an enquiry and directed the police to nab the culprits and help and protect the victims.
