Lucknow : It looks like the new Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh is hyper active. The yogi govt has replaced the word Samajwadi from all government schemes and replaced it with Mukhyamantri.

The Samajwadi ambulance service in UP will now be called the "Mukhyamantri ambulance service rather than Samajwadi ambulance service. This applies to everything in the UP government that former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had named after his party.

Earlier, Akhilesh Yadav himself clearly did not subscribe to the Bard's theory and had renamed several districts that his predecessor Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati had named after Dalit leaders. He had also scrapped social welfare schemes and awards that she had named for Dalit leaders and her mentor Kanshi Ram, when he came to power in 2012.

There is in UP a Samajwadi smart phone scheme, pension scheme, health insurance scheme, youth employment scheme and many more. The name change order was given by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath after a review meting last night.  


The new BJP government had earlier decided to not distribute over 60 lakh ration cards printed by the previous government as they featured a photograph of the former Chief Minister.
