Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday alleged that his predecessor Akhilesh Yadav deprived the state of facilities that are essential for development.

However, the real task for Yogi Adityanath is to cut down the number of holidays that government employees enjoy. And smart metres would be installed in all households.

Around 100 weddings will be held in every district after eligible candidates are selected, he said.

Government offices and schools remain closed on the birth anniversaries of Bhagwan Mahavir, Ambedkar, Mahatma Gandhi, Guru Nanak Dev, Maharana Pratap, former prime ministers Chandrashekhar and Charan Singh, Maharshi Kashyap, Nishadraj, Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, Hazrat Ali, Parashuram and saint Valmiki.

The chief minister also launched the "1912" toll-free helpline for complaints.

Paying tributes to the father of Indian Constitution, the Chief Minister said Ambedkar was against "playing politics" at the cost of the country.

"All the contracts will be awarded through e-tendering".

Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh government had chose to not distribute over 60 lakh ration cards printed by the Akhilesh Yadav government as they featured a photograph of the former chief minister.

A proposal is being prepared, the minister said, adding besides extending monetary assistance of Rs 20,000 to each bride, the government will bear other expenses for the mass wedding.

The Uttar Pradesh government and the federal government have entered into an agreement which promises to provide 24x7 power supply to all the households in the state.
