New Delhi: From 16-hour workday to giving up the red beacon, from a fiscally sounds farm loan waiver to planning Cabinet meetings outside Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath never falls short of surprises. In his latest interview to news portal Khabare, he reveals a totally new side of him — a focused administrator. Here are some of the quotes where the Yogi impresses the readers:

ON LIQUOR BAN

“I have asked the administration to find a solution by seeing that liquor is not sold within 500 metres of places of worship, residential areas, educational institutions and hospitals”

ON ANTI-ROMEO SQUAD

“I have given instructions that consenting adults who move together in public places should not be harassed"

"Those who follow the law need not worry at all. But those who don’t believe in the rule of law should indeed be worried"

ON EDUCATIONAL REFORMS

“We have decided to introduce English in government schools from nursery. Why should they be made to wait till Class VI to learn the language”

“From Class III, they (students) should be taught Sanskrit and from Class X they should have the option of learning a foreign language of their choice”

“UP education board should have a modern curriculum and text books on the lines of NCERT”

“For higher education, we are exploring whether all 16 universities can have a common curriculum and how to put an end to copying (cheating in exams)”

ON REFORMING BUREAUCRACY

“Bureaucracy will deliver what the political leadership wants. The requirements of previous regimes from bureaucrats were different. Here I don’t have a personal agenda. My job is to ensure the implementation of my party’s manifesto”

“People will have to work for 18 to 20 hours and only then they will be able to keep their jobs”

“Transfers (of bureaucrats) are no solution. They don’t mark any change. Those who don’t perform will be sent home. A message has to go so that that there is accountability”

ON GOVERNANCE

“In the very first meeting of the Cabinet, I told my colleagues that we have to tackle the challenges of corruption, lawlessness, casteism and the politics of appeasement”

“I have already asked officials to prepare a roadmap on what they can do in 90 days, six months and one year”
