The chief minister, who was in Banda on Saturday, while reviewing the wheat purchase, directed the officials to ensure that the farmers' produce is procured at the minimum support price.

He also instructed the officials to complete the process of purchase of wheat from farmers by 15 June.

He was also of the view that the list of farmers be made available to public representatives, so that their exact status and condition could be ascertained.

Adityanath issued orders for construction of more check dams for water conservation in Bundelkhand — a drought-prone region — on a priority basis.

The chief minister also mentioned that an expressway will be constructed in Bundelkhand which will integrate the entire region with the growth path.

He also gave instructions to officials concerned to initiate an awareness campaign to make the region open defecation free by 31 December.

He told officials to send a proposal to the government to bring Hamirpur, Mahoba and Chitrakoot under the AMRUT scheme.

The chief minister also said the state government will act tough on all the criminal elements in the state, and initiate stringent action against those involved in illegal mining.
