In a meeting with the officials of the family welfare department last night, Yogi Adityanath also stressed on the need to ensure that children get better nutrition.
The chief minister also made it clear to the officers that laxity in the implementation of schemes meant for the welfare of women and children will not be tolerated, an official spokesperson said.
Besides emphasising on the immunisation programme for children, the Chief Minister asked for taking firm action under the rules to check female foeticide for maintaining gender ratio in society.
In his second cabinet meeting, the Chief Minister - who is also the head priest of the Gorakhpur's Gorakhnath Temple - ordered 18-hour power supply in villages and 20 hours of electricity for the state's Bundelkhand region. Recently, Yogi Adityanath said that the state would form an anti-land mafia task force as well as schemes for the success of 'Make in UP', along the lines of PM Narendra Modi's 'Make in India' policy.
