Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath might announce some more decisions in the favour of the common man following his second cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

On Monday, Uttar Pradesh health Minister Siddharth Nath Singh tweeted that the agenda of the second cabinet meeting will be to ‘serve the common man’.

A metro rail project for his hometown Gorakhpur might be announced along with ‘Power for All’ scheme which is aimed at providing load-shedding free 24-hour electricity supply to the entire state.

Another major decision which might be taken to improve the electricity supply in the state will be replacement of all the faulty transformers of the state within 24 hours. This was also promised by the Bharatiya Janta Party in their election manifesto.

The second cabinet meeting of Aditanath started at 11 am in Lok Bhawan in Lucknow. Deputy CM Dinesh Sharma will not be present in the meeting as he is out of town.

Another thing that might be on the cabinet meeting agenda is the removal of word ‘Samajwadi’ from all the previous schemes of the Samajwadi Party government.

The cabinet may also bring ordinance for farmers and especially sugarcane farmers.

A discussion over new mining laws is likely to take place during the meeting.

Adityanath had constituted groups of ministers who will be looking after mining and potato production and purchase. The reports of these ministers may also be tabled before the cabinet in the second meeting. Adityanath may also take some key decision to provide cheap meals to the poor people of the state.
