Two of Yogi Adityanath's most controversial decisions incidentally are the most popular. The decision to ban illegal slaughterhouses and setting up of anti-Romeo squads have been rated as the most popular decisions in a survey conducted by Gaon Connection, India's biggest rural media platform.
In the survey, 71 per cent of the respondents said that Yogi was working in the right direction. The survey was carried out in 200 administrative blocks spread across 20 districts in Uttar Pradesh.
Gaon Connection Insight Team members personally interviewed 2,000 respondents in districts ranging from Lalitpur in the underdeveloped Bundelkhand region in Uttar Pradesh's southwest to Sonbhadra in the remote southeast, from Meerut in the west to Siddharthnagar in the east.
38.1 per cent of the respondents voted for the ban on illegal slaughterhouses as Yogi's best decision. 25.4 per cent voted in favour of the anti-Romeo squad followed by 23.7 per cent in favour of the decision asking ministers to declare their income. The ban on spitting paan in public offices got the support of only 12.9 per cent people.
