BJP's Yogi Adityanath sworn in as Uttar Pradesh chief minister
Mar 20, 2017, 00:35
A five-time MP from the BJP, Adityanath is a popular leader known for his fiery Hindu rhetoric who has stirred controversies over his polarising and inflammatory speeches against Muslims - who form almost 20 percent of the state's population. At Smriti Upawan in Lucknow on Sunday, Yogi Adityanath was sworn in as the new UP Chief Minister.
"I have vast confidence that this new team will leave no stone unturned in making UP Uttam Pradesh". This would have been better avoided.
Pawar stressed upon the need of an anti-BJP grand alliance fearing that the "mandir-masjid" politics may get a boost with Yogi Adityanath becoming the Uttar Pradesh chief minister.
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.
Math sources said Adityanath had taken over the conduct of the daily rituals from his guru, Mahant Avaidyanath, more than 20 years ago. "Our Government will work for the welfare of the people", he said.
In choosing Adityanath, Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma - two leaders from the upper castes and one from the backward caste - the BJP has balanced the caste considerations. Cricketer-turned-politician Mohsin Raza was also sworn in as a minister of state becoming the only Muslim face in the Adityanath government.
