Lucknow: In the wake of growing opposition chorus against his government on various issues including law and order and communal violence, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav  held a meeting with top government and police officials to review the situation.

Asking officials not to spare people out to spread chaos in society, he said instructions had already been issued to crack down on mischief-makers and anti-social elements.

Yadav underlined that maintaining law and order was a top priority of his government and that it was something on which the government could not compromise.

The Uttar Pradesh government, he added, was not only committed to safety and security of citizens and maintenance of law and order but also to all-round and comprehensive development of the state.

He said law and order in a district was the prime responsibility of the district magistrate and the district police chief and warned that anyone found wanting in his or her duties would be sternly dealt with.

Even as the Centre and the state governments are trying to find a solution to the menace of stubble burning, an innovator from Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur claims to have developed a cost effective solution. Ganga Ram Chauhan has invented a bicycle-based shredder machine which can crush and grind elements, including wood, leaves and crop remains into particles of less than 80 mm size. These particles can then be easily converted into compost. The machine costs only around Rs 5,000-6000, he says.

“A scientist Mita Tarafdar asked me to develop a machine for zero waste management. Stubble burning was an issue that I had always wanted to deal with. So I developed a bicycle-based shredder machine. Crushed particles of the crop residue can be turned into compost and farmers will not require any chemical fertiliser. They can sell their bio crops and vegetables at higher prices,” said Ganga Ram Chauhan.

Senior principal scientist Mita Tarafdar, from the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research-National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur (CSIR-NML), said that the machine was kept at the centre and can be improvised to benefit farmers and also check pollution due to the stubble burning.

The 50-year-old Ganga Ram Chauhan constantly keeps innovating and was awarded by the Yogi government in 2018 for his innovations.
