    Now talk directly to Akhilesh on FB
    Lucknow, Feb 14, 2014, DHNS:

    SP learns from Modi, tries to connect better with voters
    In an attempt to counter BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has decided to take the social media route to connect with people of the state.

    The young Samajwadi Party leader will soon launch ‘Talk to Your CM' campaign through his Facebook page to “directly speak” to people and seek their suggestions on a variety of issues.

    The campaign comes barely days after the much publicised ‘Chai Par Charcha’ (discussion over tea) programme by Modi through which he spoke directly to millions of people across the country.

    Some four lakh people have so far ‘liked’ Akhilesh’s Facebook page and the chief minister expects that a large number of people, especially youths, will join him in this campaign. The campaign’s tagline is ‘You too can bring in change in Uttar Pradesh’, officials said here.

    They said the chief minister has decided that all constructive suggestions received from people should be put into practice. The officials said departments have been asked to make sure that good suggestions were implemented.

    The officials said the government has so far distributed 15 lakh free laptops to students who cleared the intermediate examinations in 2012 and 2013.

    “Many of the students will be voting for the first time in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections. The exercise is aimed at connecting with them and other youths in the state,” an official said.

    Akhilesh was instrumental in bringing change in the philosophy of the SP. On his prodding the SP gave up its opposition to use of computers and English language.

    Activist asks Akhilesh Yadav to act against IAS officer who took bribe - The Times of India

    LUCKNOW: Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav may land into trouble for 'admitting' that he made an IAS officer return bribe.

    Social activist Nutan Thakur on Saturday wrote to Yadav demanding action against the said officer, failing which she would approach the court seeking intervention in the matter.

    Yadav, while addressing bureaucrats on the first day of the 'IAS week' on Friday, had criticized senior officers for corruption and lackadaisical approach towards work.

    Without taking any names, Yadav reportedly said that an officer took bribe from a person whom he had recommended and even after taking bribe, the officer did not do the work.

    Yadav said that when he came to know about the matter, he made the officer return bribe and later shifted him to another post.

    Yadav's statement was reported in the media following which Thakur decided to write to him.

    In her letter, Thakur asked the chief minister to take action against the said officer under Prevention of Corruption Act.

    She said when it has been proved that the officer took bribe, which is a crime, the chief minister cannot let off the accused by asking him to return the bribe and later transferring him to another post.

    "I have requested the chief minister to take action by March 15, otherwise I would be move to the court in this matter," she said.
