"Laxity in extending help under the various schemes to the poor and needy will not be tolerated...the government will take stern action against whosoever is found cheating on the poor," Adityanath said while campaigning for BJP nominees here for the upcoming civic polls.

We can seize the property of those cheating on the rights of the poor and can even retire them compulsorily, Yogi said.

The BJP is taking the Uttar Pradesh civic polls seriously as it wants to ensure that the benefits of government schemes reach the last man on the social ladder, Yogi said.

Attacking the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party, he said that corruption was at its peak during the past 15 years in the state and all works in the civic bodies were decided from Lucknow.

Adityanath said his government has given a free hand to the police to deal with criminal elements and those hobnobbing with criminals will be identified and taken to task.
