CHIEF MINISTER Akhilesh Yadav minced no words Saturday when he warned officials that if their non-performance led to him losing his job, he would make things disastrous for them as well.
At a social enterprise summit held at his residence and attended by IAS officers, the CM reportedly said: “Before you make me jobless, I will make things disastrous for you.”

The summit was a closed-door meeting with as many as 10 divisional commissioners, nine district magistrates and principal secretaries and senior officials of departments including rural development, panchayati raj, health and education present. Chief Secretary Alok Ranjan, too, attended the meeting.
The event was named ‘Manch 2015’ and was organised by a private organisation, which has selected 30 development models from across the country. Of these, 25 have been selected for implementation in Uttar Pradesh.
Akhilesh’s remark came in the light of the several months that it would apparently take before the projects’ effective implementation takes place.
“You have to work on these projects. You could not receive more support from anyone otehr than me. If I lose people’s support, you will lose my support. But before that happens, things would have turned disastrous for you,” he reportedly warned the officials.
Akhilesh also reminded the officials that the country is witnessing a trend of state governments repeating their term. “If you believe that we may not return to power, I want to say that we will in the next elections. The government is ours now, we will come again, we will keep on coming in future. You, too, will remain here, so if work is not done, be ready to face the music,” he reportedly said.
Earlier in September too, the chief minister had, during a function at his residence, warned the officials that he knows where to “tighten the nuts and bolts” to make them work.
