Yogi Adityanath as Uttar Pradesh CM: Did Modi just backstab UP voters?

Yogi Adityanath as Uttar Pradesh CM: Did Modi just backstab UP voters?”

Putting an end to all speculations, the BJP named Yogi Adityanath as the next Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, while Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma has been appointed as the Deputy chief ministers of the state.

However, now the BJP leadership is keen on having a senior leader as the Uttar Pradesh chief minister who can fix the law and order problem in the state and fast-track development.

There can be no other possible explanation for the appointment of Hindutva ideologue Yogi Adityanath as CM of India's most populous state.

After the landslide assembly election win in Uttar Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in hand-picking the UP chief minister designate took some time to mull it over before making a decision.

The BJP legislators also endorsed the proposal for two Deputy Chief Ministers.

Adityanath's offensive quotable quotes are not hard to find and sure to be replayed routinely by BJP opponents, critics, and liberals in time to come.

While the BJP MP has largely focused on Hindutva, one can not overlook his contributions to the development cause either. He had so far been operating from Gorakhnath temple, which he presides in Gorakhpur and his only organisational ability, proven so far, was in leading his own Hindu Yuva Vahini.

Some of the daunting tasks before Chief Minister Adityanath would be to address the massive unemployment in the state, followed by lack of infrastructure and education. "How the PM has chosen to interpret the UP results is shown in his selection of the new UP CM #Development". A man who has several criminal cases against him.

The verdict given by people in Uttar Pradesh March 2017 was no different.

A controversial figure in Uttar Pradesh politics, Adityanath has considerable clout in Eastern Uttar Pradesh.

Although Poorvanchal is Adityanath's bastion, he was used as one of the prime star-campaigners by BJP in western UP as well.

The choice of the CM was delayed because of hectic parleys within the Sangh Parivar, where, at one stage, a section of the RSS wanted to install Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to the august office.
