Ghaziabad, Feb.20 (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Mayawati conducted a surprise inspection visit to Ghaziabad District on Sunday.

She visited the district civil hospital, some police stations and other offices to pull up police and allied officials for what she termed as dereliction of duties.

She also pointed out various flaws in the hygiene and lack of green cover in and around the hospital, according to the media reports.

She suspended various district officials and also ordered transfers for their lax attitude in implementing work.

Public gave mixed reaction to her visit as some appreciated the visit while others contended her movement as it created too many traffic hurdles with the police barring commoners from using the roads and even standing on the pavements.

Another incident concerning the unruly behavior of lawmakers from the ruling part was seen in the national media when the legislator of Meerut slapped police personnel and tore his uniform.

According to reports, the lawmaker did not appreciate the policeman stopping him from using a road where traffic restrictions were in force for a religious procession on Saturday. (ANI)
