Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday climbed the watch tower of his official residence to enquire about the well being of security
personnel posted on it.
Security personnel at the tower, overlooking the 5
Kalidas Marg and adjoining areas, were taken aback after
finding chief minister by their side.
Yadav not only mingled with them, but also asked about
their problems, sources said.
He assured them support.
Later, Yadav met people and party representatives
and took their applications.
"The autocratic rule of Mayawati is over, and people can
easily meet the CM with their problems. The people are liking
this change," party spokesman Rajendra Chowdhury said.
Yadav`s moves come as a surprise for those who have seen
the area around the Kalidas Marg heavily barricaded during the
previous Mayawati regime.
