Yogi Adityanath sworn in as UP CM; PM Narendra Modi stresses development

Yogi Adityanath sworn in as UP CM; PM Narendra Modi stresses development

BSP chief said BJP's development face stands exposed as Yogi will only carry out Hindutva politics in the state.

Rita Joshi is the only woman in Yogi's cabinet. "Such a man is going to be the Chief Minister - it is a sad day for Uttar Pradesh and a sadder day for India", Karat said. After the ceremony, Modi said in a tweet: "Our sole mission and motive is development".

The party of India's prime minister, Narendra Modi, runs on a religious nationalist platform, arguing the country's identity and culture are inherently Hindu in character. "I want to assure people that BJP, which got votes for development and security, will show positive resuilts soon", the Chief Minister said. "Our Government will work for the welfare of the people", he said.

"We will ensure balanced development of UP", he asserted.

In his first interaction with mediapersons after taking over, Adityanath said that his government will follow the "sabka saath sabka vikas" (With all, development for all) agenda in serving the state.

Adityanath has also compared Shah Rukh Khan to the Pakistani terrorist Hafiz Saeed, saying that "Shah Rukh Khan should remember that majority population of the Country made him the Star, and if they boycot his films, he will also have to wander on streets".




After a meeting with local BJP legislators on Saturday, senior party leader M. Venkaiah Naidu announced 44-year-old Yogi Adityanath as Uttar Pradesh's next chief minister.

As a Union Minister of Communication and minister of the state of Railways, Manoj sustains a deliberately low profile but is seen as a honest silent performer.

The BJP's electoral triumph in Uttar Pradesh - it won 312 of 403 assembly seats - is seen by analysts as a harbinger for Mr Modi and the BJP in the 2019 parliamentary elections, as they are strongly favoured to win another five-year term in office. Both Adityanath Yogi and Uttarakhand's Trivendra Singh Rawat are close to the RSS or its ideology and rivals allege that the BJP's message is blunt.

Those criticizing #YogiAdityanath as Chief Minister of UP will be the ones appreciating him after Modi is done with his speech tomorrow.

In Gorakhpur, 300km to the east, a seer from Haridwar who had come to celebrate Adityanath's political elevation had to look beyond the continent to find a fitting analogy for the yogi's pre-eminence.
