At a meeting of the state's Home, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that those with political connections should not get special treatment and food in jail. He further continued to the jail department that who so ever whether the small criminal or a dangerous don all should be provided with same food and facilities.
Over the years, there are many claims especially with people in jail who have political connections, they enjoy certain privileges in jails including the use of mobile phones and special food.
This came after CM decision to erode the "rule of lawlessness" which is claimed to be under the Samajwadi Party government of Akhilesh Yadav(previous party who governed UP).
Yogi Adityanath also allegedly in the meeting ordered to stop the installation of mobile phone jammers and warned the officials of jail department. And said the criminals should be allowed to use medical treatment as an excuse to enjoy time out of rigorous imprisonment. Proper check on the issue of medical should be checked before providing them the facilities.
At last the new chief minister also stressed on effective checks on corruption in all department of the police force and the identification of staff members who have links with criminals and "anti-social elements".
