“We are people who sit on the floor,” Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has told officials while directing them not to make special arrangements when he tours the state. “Honouring the people of the state is in fact the honour of the chief minister,” Adityanath told officials on Friday.

“No special arrangements should be made for me during visits, inspections and other programmes… we are people who sit on the floor,” the chief minister said. The directive comes amid reports that a window AC, sofa and a carpet were given to martyred BSF head constable Prem Sagar’s family in Deoria when the chief minister had called on them.

The family said they were taken aback when authorities removed the air conditioner, sofa and carpet soon after the chief minister left their place. “Officials took away the carpet, sofa and AC soon after Adityanath left our residence,” Dayasagar, the martyr’s brother, was quoted as saying.

There was, however, no official word on it. There were also reports that the Kushinagar administration provided soap and shampoo to members of the Scheduled Caste Mushahar community ahead of a visit by Adityanath. They were reportedly asked to meet the chief minister after a proper bath.

    No special arrangements except business cl in case of air travel, full first cl a/c bogey reserved in case of rail travel, a Toyota Fortuner for short road travel, soap bath and mouth wash for all poor people I visit and cry for, temporary a/c, sofas and kashimiri carpet at any house I visit, R/o treated pavitra gangajal for drinking, sterilised gobar on gold plates, pavitra gaumutra freshly produced by clean disease free gaumata. That's it. I don't need anything else. I am a simple yogi like Ashram Bapu and Swami Nityanand. So you can supply a virgin underage girl to do my seva. Thank you in advance.

      In addition, UP Chief Minister is expected to avoid errors made by Ahilesh Yadav, who was blind, without eyes and ears, in his 35. Ahilesh Yadav's advisers did not follow the typical Indian traditions and the typical modern style of the _lections. UP state governance is not poor for architecture.
