During this period, the DMs and SSPs will hear the common people and try to solve their problems. No official meetings or work will be carried out.

"The state government is committed to providing succour to the people facing difficulties and the Chief Minister (Yogi Adityanath) himself is meeting people every day at his official residence," the official said.

Other than the DMs and SSPs, all district officials including departmental heads will also be available for the people between the same time period on every working day.

A senior official said that to check the availability and timely attendance of officials, the Chief Minister might make surprise calls to them on their landline phones.

"We are also making efforts that problems of people are sorted out at district level so that they do not have to come to Lucknow and petition Adityanath," the official added.
