Firebrand BJP MP Yogi Adityanath is new UP CM, Swearing in tomorrow

Lucknow, March 18: Yogi Adityanath is announced as next Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, confirmed sources. The swearing in ceremony would take place tomorrow.

After party high command forwarded the coveted responsibility of announcing the name of UP CM to party President Amit Shah, Governor Ram Naik also said on Friday, “The new Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh along with his Cabinet colleagues would take oath on March 19 at 5.00 PM at Kanshiram Smriti Upvan.”

The ascension of fireband leader of BJP, Adityanath strengthens the BJP’s ‘Hindutva’ establishment in the state, but it may provide enough fodder to the opposition to attack the saffron party on lines of ‘divisive politics’ at the same time.

Earlier, Yogi Adityanath’s supporters have put posters and raised slogans demanding him to be the Chief Minister.

The BJP secured so many seats in the state because of Adityanath. We don’t oppose anybody who’s in the running, but we want Yogi ji to be the Chief Minister,” they said.

Seven days after Bharatiya Janta Party registered an unprecedented win in Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, the mystery over the name of Chief Minister name widened as supporters of Keshav Prasad Maurya and Yoginath flocked BJP office to demonstrate their support for their leaders.

Few names that were making rounds in media reports for the postion of UP CM were of state party chief Keshav Prasad Maurya, Union Minister Manoj Sinha, and Hindu hardliner Yogi Adityanath, who is also MP from Gorakhpur and Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh. Earlier Home Minister Rajnath Singh was suspected as the lead name for the position.Few Media reports including ANI and IANS claimed Union Telecom Minister and Ghazipur MP Manoj Sinha is going to be next UP CM owing to his large experience in the party operations.

Sinha however brushed off the reports. He said, I am not in race for CM post; Legislature party and Parliamentary board would decide and section of media is unnecessarily speculating.

Both Maurya and Yoginath were called to meet Amit Shah in the morning before the high-octane meeting of BJP’s 312 newly-elected MLAs to decide the final name in Luchnow.

Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav will also be present at the meeting to elect the chief minister.

Another group had demanded veteran leader Kalyan Singh to be given the coveted post making it a problem of plenty for the state leadership.

We know that he is the ruling Governor of a state, but we think he is the only one who can handle the state and its affairs,” one of the protestors said.

Since the BJP picked Trivendra Singh Rawat as the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, a similar choice of caste in Sinha may strengthen the party’s stronghold in the north.

Tejashwi Yadav

Patna, April 24: Bihar opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav on Tuesday slammed NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant’s statement blaming the state for India’s backwardness, saying the remark has exposed the mindset of “babus” in the Modi-led government.

“Bihar and Bihari’s pay equal taxes, contribute equally or more in govrnance and nation building. Bihar gave 33 MPs to NDA, seven Union Ministers from Bihar, both State and Centre governments are of same party and alliance. But still these Babus say Bihar is backward…” the former Deputy Chief Minister tweeted.

Tejashwi Yadav, who is the younger son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, said that if Bihar was backward especially on social indicators as claimed by then NITI Aayog, then Prime Minister Narendra Modi should grant a special category status to the state for its development.

“Modi has failed to grant special category status or special packages promised by him. Four years have passed, but nothing has happened so far, except ‘jumlas’ (hollow words),” he said.

Tejaswi Yadav said the people of Bihar had been betrayed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government.

While delivering the first Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan Memorial Lecture in Jamia Millia Islamia University, Kant said on Monday: “Eastern part of India particularly states like Bihar, UP, Chattisgarh, MP, and Rajasthan are keeping India backward especially on social indicators. While we have improved on ease of doing business, we have remained backward on human development index.”

Kant further said that India was still 131 out of 188 countries in the Human Development Index (HDI).
