Yogi stressed that the rule of law would be ensured in the state at any cost and that nobody would be allowed to take law into his hand under any circumstance. “The police and administration will act immediately on complaints against criminals. The anti-Romeo squad was instructed to work strictly as per guidelines, so that no one was harassed unnecessarily. Now girls will not be troubled while going to school. Law and order situation of every district will be reviewed by ministers concerned,” Yogi said.

The CM stated that payments of ` 6,200 crore due to farmers had been made. “Now farmers have the option to sell their crop at ‘wheat purchase centres’ at good rates.
