Lucknow: After plugging the loopholes in the state's law and order situation, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has now shifted focus to jailed dons and high profile criminals.
According to PTI, UP CM has now ordered state prison officials to provide same food and treatment to all, whether petty criminals or notorious mafia dons.
The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister's remarks came at a review meeting of the state's Home, Vigilance and Jails department late last night.
There have often been reports and allegations in the past about certain prisoners enjoying privileges in jails including the use of phones etc.
The Chief Minister said the same food should be given to all convicts - petty criminals or mafia dons - lodged in jails and ordered installation of mobile phone jammers, an official spokesman said.
Yogi Adityanath warned officials of the jails department against any leniency shown towards notorious criminals and asserted that they should not be allowed to use medical treatment as an excuse.
In the meeting, the chief minister stressed on effective checks on corruption in all cells of the police and identification of staff members having links with criminals and anti-social elements, the spokesperson said.
