Jail on bail

January 28 2018

The biggest challenge facing UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is the maintenance of law and order in the state. Apparently, in the recent days, he clashed directly with the PMO for the appointment of his favourite officer Om Prakash Singh as the new Director General of Police.
OP Singh was the DIG of CISF when Yogi announced to make him the state’s next DG. Following this, the Home Ministry and PMO interrupted his decision and instead asked to consider another person – Anjani Kumar Singh – for the post. But Yogi did not bow down. He directly spoke to the PM on the matter and green-signalled the name of OP Singh.
Now the atmosphere in UP is such that the ill-fated criminals are afraid of bails and not being in jails. Sources reveal that at least 700 criminals who have been languishing in various jails in UP have cancelled their bail pleas, as they are afraid of stepping out. According to sources, within a period of nine months of Yogi government, around 1000 criminals were encountered. The trend is continuing as the Yogi administration first wants to curb big criminals in the state.
