    In an apparent bid to curb expenses, new UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav scrapped 26 programmes and schemes of the Mayawati regime, replaced the Ambedkar Gram Sabha Vikas Yojana (AGSVY) with a project named after the Samajwadi Party ideologue, Ram Manohar Lohia, and ended the quota system in government contracts.
