Noida: Chief Minister Mayawati on Sunday took
local officials to task over "slackness" in discharging duty.

Mayawati, who visited Bhimrao Ambedkar multi-specialty
hospital in Noida, gave a dressing down to the officials over poor
maintenance of the medical wards.

Unsatisfied with the pace of disposal of cases, she
pulled up the SHO of sector 39 police station, directing the
officials to take action against a former SHO over
maintenance of a complaint register there.

The chief minister, however, did not visit the
under-construction Ambedkar Park and a multi-specialty
hospital at sector 30. The Supreme Court recently gave a
green signal for construction of the park.

Earlier, Mayawati visited Ghaziabad district and
inspected the progress of various development programmes.

She expressed satisfaction over the development work
being carried out in Ambedkar villages, officials said.

The Chief Minister also reviewed the pace of progress
relating to Kanshi Ram housing projects.

Visiting the MMG Hospital, she talked to the patients
and listened to their complaints.

Mayawati expressed her displeasure over the condition
of the hospital and directed the administration to improve it.

Inspecting the progress of development schemes in
Meerut district, the Chief Minister said no compromise would
be made with the quality of work.

She also inspected the houses constructed under the
Kanshiram Housing Project.

Visiting a primary school in Hasanpur Kala, Mayawati
interacted with students and inquired about the mid-day meal
scheme.

She enquired about the crime rate against women and
dalits in Dheli Gate Police Station and directed the officials
to redress their grievances immediately.

The Chief Minister met patients in the District Women
Hospital and inquired about medical facilities provided to
them.

Meanwhile, locals in Greater Noida on Sunday complained
Mayawati of deteriorating law and order during her visit to a
Ambedkar village in the area.

Expressing concern over the situation, the Chief
Minister warned police officials of stern actions, if law and
order do not improve.

Recently, two officials of Yamuna Expressway Authority
were abducted by the agitating farmers, who were demanding a
higher compensation for their acquired land.
