India's Market Braces For 'Anti-Islam' Leader Appointed By Modi

While talking to the media after his election as BJP Legislative Party Leader in Uttar Pradesh Assembly, Yogi Adityanath said he would follow Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "sabka saath, sabka vikas" slogan and exuded confidence that the state would march on the path of development.

Adityanath, 44, was elected by state lawmakers on Saturday, a week after the BJP won a landslide victory in India's most populous state by mobilising the Hindu vote. He was sworn in on Sunday.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has set the ball rolling by taking some crucial decisions.

Adityanath said Mahatma Gandhi's dream for the country was not merely regarding political freedom but also about a clean and developed nation.

In 2000, Mr Adityanath was accused, in three separate incidents, of crimes including attempted murder, rioting, and promoting enmity between religious groups. And in 2007, he was arrested on allegations of inciting riots, the Press Trust of India said. Investigations in these cases subsequently stalled, allowing him to pursue his political career. "There will be record development", the Prime Minister added.

TRT World 's Shamim Chowdhury has more.

"That is why they have made an RSS man the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh", BSP supremo Mayawati said on Sunday. "The burden of his performance now rests on the prime minister, because there's no doubt he was Modi's choice". "In 2019 the issue will be the performance of Narendra Modi over the past five years, and what expectations people have of him in the next five years", he said.

But over the years, he has acquired a reputation for inflammatory speeches targeting minorities - Muslims in particular. Nearly an year ago the National Green Tribunal had ordered the closure of these two slaughterhouses, an official said.

The BJP fielded no candidates from the Muslim minority that makes up 19 percent of the population in a state with a population of 220 million that is home to 15 percent of the world's poor. In one of his earlier statement he even said that, "If given a chance, we will install statues of Goddess Gauri, Ganesh and Nandi in every mosque". He is the supporter of Trump's policy of banning the Muslims entry into US.

She also said that BJP will not be able to maintain law and order in Uttar Pradesh.

So, Mr Adityannath is on his way to be the next Indian Premier?

As part of a slew of measures aimed at improving the administrative efficiency of Uttar Pradesh and reduce corruption, newly inducted Chief Minister Adityanath yesterday asked key bureaucrats including the state's chief secretary, principal secretaries and secretaries to declare their income and assets within 15 days.
