The Yogi Adityanath Government in Uttar Pradesh has decided to end quota based reservations in private medical colleges and dental colleges in the state. The CM has passed an order to do away with the quota for candidates belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Class.
The UP Government is also planning to revamp the education system in the state. Instead of class 6, the government schools in UP will now introduce English subject from nursery class.
The chief minister has also ordered a probe into the ration card distribution policy.
State government officials have been directed to conduct a fresh survey of BPL families in the state and also to prepare a new list in accordance with the latest survey.
Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh government had decided to not distribute over 60 lakh ration cards printed by the Akhilesh Yadav government as they featured a photograph of the former Chief Minister.
The new Aadhaar-linked ration cards will also have silicon chips and barcodes. It will also have details of the beneficiary.
A task force to stop illegal possession of government land and taking appropriate action against the land mafia has also been constituted.
The BJP government in Uttar Pradesh is also planning to organise mass weddings for poor girls belonging to religious minorities, in an apparent attempt by the Chief Minister to shed his Hindu hardliner image.
"Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has given his consent to mass weddings of poor girls belonging to minority communities and we have included it in the 100 days' programme of the state government," Minister of State for Minorities Affairs Mohsin Raza said on Thursday.
