What is the first thing you do when you meet a celebrity or politician?

Click a selfie, right?

And when you are visiting the Parliament for the first time?

Same, right?

Well, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath seems to think otherwise.

On Thursday, a poster was spotted near Kalidas Marg, his residence, stating that clicking selfies on the road leading up to chief minister's house is punishable. 

Security reasons you say?

Well, you do brag about your police force na? 

Looks like even former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav could not stop himself from poking fun at you.

Unemployment Rate in Uttar Pradesh is higher than the national average of our country. Earlier this year, Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya had told the media that the rate of unemployment in rural areas was 5.8 percent and in urban areas, it was 6.5 percent.

Chief minister Sir, no job mela has been able to help reduce these numbers.

When you took oath as the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, you said that your government would not tolerate corruption, but soon your own deputy chief minister didn't seem clear on the stand.

"Kamao lekin dal main namak barabar hona chahiye. Khao jaise dal main namak khaya jata hai," he was quoted as saying.

To remind you of a recent case, a report has come to light that shows that mothers in your state are still waiting for the money promised to them in 2016.

Pollution

Uttar Pradesh is home to more than half of the most polluted cities in the country. Although media was completely focused on the smog in Delhi, pollution levels in Ghaziabad and Allahabad were no less.

And unfortunately, you have not even said a word about it.

Head of RSS wing in Uttar Pradesh was quoted saying that they would soon launch a reverse Love Jihad Programme. Under this programme over 2,000 Muslim girls will be married to Hindu boys.

When you visited Kerala earlier this year, where you said that Love Jihad was a dangerous trend. But look at your state.

Soon after your appointment as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, you announced a ban on pan masalas and plastic bags in government offices. 

Sir, your state is the most populous state for this in the country. Not everyone works in government offices. What about the roads, littering on the roads?

So, dear Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath...

So, dear Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath...

Isn't it better that some bans be implemented in these areas? Yes, it has not even been a year since you took office but instead of wasting time on ensuring your own security, it would be better you focus on your state and make it a better place to live in.   

Do you think Yogi Adityanath's decision is right?
