Gorakhpur: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday directed officials of the Public Works Department (PWD) to make all state roads pothole free by 15 June.

In his first public appearance after taking over as the state’s chief minister, Adityanath declared, in Gorakhpur, that he has told the PWD officials to ensure that there are no potholes in the roads of the state by 15 June.

Yogi Adityanath also asked the officials to prepare a work plan to extend better facilities to the people residing in rural areas. The chief minister asked for adopting e-tendering so as to make the system more transparent and corruption free. He underlined the need to keep tainted firms and contractors having mafia, criminal and corrupt image away from departmental works and instead give an opportunity to those with clean image who can ensure qualitative work.
