In The End, This Is What Worked In Yogi Adityanath's Favour

Interestingly, the chief minister, his two deputies - BJP state unit chief Keshav Prasad Maurya (47) and party's national vice president Dinesh Sharma (53) - and Raza (49) are not members of either House of the UP legislature.

About the statements by BJP leaders that development will be the party's main agenda in the state, Jha said: "Development is only a facade to actually pursue the Hindutva agenda in India".

"UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is among the many serving unmarried chief ministers".

The oath ceremony was taking place with the presence of numerous eminent guests, which included LK Advani, Narendra Modi and Chief Ministers from various other states.

According to him, Adityanath led a group that carried out communal violence in 2007. One of the star campaigners of this Assembly Elections, the Hindutva poster boy has served as a BJP MP of Gorakhpur for five years.

While on the one hand, BJP seems to have made a reasonable choice with the reappointment of Manohar Parrikar as the Goa CM, the appointment of Yogi Adityanath as the CM (possibly to ensure the fulfilment of the Ramrajya dream) of Uttar Pradesh sets the party at least 20 steps back into the dark ages.

Dietmar Hamann states his prediction for Man City v Liverpool
Yaya Toure and Nicolas Otamendi start from the beginning today having been on the bench during City's 3-1 defeat to AS Monaco midweek.

Adityanath was credited for aiding the BJP in winning 325 of 403 of the Uttar Pradesh's seats during the state's recent elections.

A spokesman for Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) however said the government did not make any distinction between citizens on the basis of religion. However, in choosing these leaders, the BJP has also ignored western and north-western Uttar Pradesh, from where it swept the 2017 elections.

Yogi Adiyanath was sprung on the 'who is chief minister?' narrative when news broke Saturday morning that he had flown to New Delhi to meet Narendra Modi and then returned to Lucknow hours before BJP MLAs met to choose the chief minister. He was elected an MP in 2014 when he declared 10 criminal cases against him.

Maurya is the state BJP chief and a Lok Sabha member from Phoolpur while Sharma is the Lucknow mayor.

India's 1.3 billion people are about 80 percent Hindu and 14 percent Muslim, with the rest made up of Christians, Sikhs and other minorities.

While the Chief Ministers of Maharashtra, Haryana and Jharkhand are low-profile figures not belonging to dominant communities in the State, Adityanath is not just the mahant (head priest) of the famous Gorakhnath temple but also a Thakur. He is even reported to have said that those who did not practice surya namaskar, a yoga practice, should leave India. Hitting out at the opposition parties in his trademark style, the newly-appointed CM in his first brief interaction with the media said his government will gradually mend all the discrepancies. "India's Jan Shakti is powering the rise of a new & transformed India".
