Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said concrete steps would be taken for the development of the state and to bring in a good law and order situation.

Stern action would be taken against those taking law and order in their hands even if they are associated with the party, Akhilesh said while addressing a function.

The CM said that good and able officers would be given full opportunity to work and lax officers would not be allowed to continue on their posts. He said that police personnel have to work under tough conditions therefore the government would take measures for their welfare.

Akhilsh alleged that development works came to a standstill in the state due to wrong policies of the previous government. He assured that along with better law and order, his government would fulfil other promises made to the people.

The CM said that the government would take some big decisions in the budget to be presented soon.

He said that instead of unnecessary works, the present government would utilise funds to set up IT parks so that youths can get employment.

Akhilesh said that better arrangements of sanitation, roads, flyovers, power, public transport and policing would be made in big cities specially Lucknow and separate cycle tracks would be made.

Emphasising on the use of modern technology, the CM said the government was going to distribute tablets and laptops after the budget without creating any additional burden in which students of all boards, including CBSE and ICSE would be included.

He said that as of now discussions were being held on software to be provided in tablets and laptops.
