Under severe attack for his handling of the situation, Yadav visited the sensitive district a week after the violence flared promising to book the rioters under the National Security Act.
Assuring that his government will re-build the homes that have been burnt down in the riots, the 40-year-old Chief Minister also promised government jobs to the families of those killed in the riots that started on September 7.
Akhilesh visited Kawwal first, the worst-hit Muslim-dominated village during the riots.
He also met Salim, father of Shahnawaz, who was killed by Jat men from the neighbouring Malikpura village on Aug 27 for allegedly harassing women.
He faced the ire of villagers in Kawwal where the shouted slogans and waved black flags for the apparent failure of the administration in controlling the violence.
The villagers also alleged that the Chief Minister did not receive a memorandum from them and only met the 'outsiders'.
Speaking to reporters after meeting the families, Akhilesh said his government will provide justice to the victims and take strong action against all those who took part in the communal violence.
"The incident is being probed, and those guilty will not be spared at any cost, howsoever powerful they may be," he assured.
After Kawaal, he travelled to Malakpur, Kandla and Shahpur villages and met the people who have fled their homes and are staying in government set-up shelters.
Yadav was accompanied by state cabinet minister and Samajwadi Party leader Rajendra Choudhry.
Meanwhile, Muzaffarnagar Senior Superintendent of Police Subhash Dubey has been suspended for failing to control the violence in the area.
According to reports, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is also expected to visit Muzaffarnagar on Monday.
Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi are also likely to visit the district next week.
Earlier on Saturday, curfew was relaxed at Muzaffarnagar, said police.
The police said the region is peaceful and hence curfew was relaxed from 7 am to 7 pm on Saturday.
However, security personnel are constantly monitoring the situation as tension still prevailed in the rural areas.
Curfew was lifted for 12 hours on Friday as well.
