Adityanath Yogi swung into action just a day after taking charge of Uttar Pradesh as its 21st Chief Minister.

The newly appointed Chief Minister met Principal Secretary Navneet Sehgal, Home Secretary Debasish Panda, Chief Secretary Rahul Bhatnagar and DGP Javeed Ahmed at VVIP guest house on Monday morning.

After the meeting, Yogi is expected to shift to his official residence at 5 Kalidas Marg – where saints have already started performing rituals.

Earlier on Sunday, Yogi sent a strong message against corruption by asking all his ministers to provide details of their income, moveable and immoveable assets within 15 days.

He gave this direction to his ministers at the first introductory meeting soon after assuming office.

"As uprooting corruption is the main agenda of our party, the CM in his first introductory meeting with his ministers directed them to give details of their income, moveable and immoveable properties with 15 days to the (party) organization as well as the secretary (to CM)," cabinet minister Shrikant Sharma said.

He added that the chief minister also emphasised on "coordination" between government and the BJP organisation.
