Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Shrikant Sharma on Monday exhorted people against paying bribe and underlined the state government's commitment to weed out corruption.

The state power minister said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has adopted the same style of working as followed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Centre to ensure UP's development.

"Make a video clipping in case money is demanded for any work (by government officials)," Sharma told people while speaking at a programme in Govind Vihar in Vrindaban in Mathura.

Speaking about the one-month tenure of the BJP-led government in UP, Sharma said the Prime Minister has chosen a 'sanyasi' as the chief minister to rid corruption from the state and ensure its development.

"Abhi to yeh trailer hai, film to aana baaki hai (This was just the trailer, the film is yet to follow)," he said, exuding confidence.

He assured the people that the state government was working to improve the quality of roads.

He also said that the government has virtually banned smuggling of cows to ensure their protection.

"To ensure rule of law in the state is the dream of the chief minister," Sharma said.
