Yogi Adityanath is New Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh

LUCKNOW: The suspense on who will lead India’s largest state government over here on Saturday after the BJP picked Yogi Adityanath as the Uttar Pradesh chief minister.

The decision was taken after a meeting at 4 PM at Lok Bhawan that saw central observers – Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav, BJP vice-president Om Mathur, state party chief Keshav Prasad Maurya and other senior party leaders in full attendance. A formal announcement is yet to happen on this development.

Adityanath’s elevation can strengthen BJP’s ‘Hindutva’ establishment in the state, but may provide enough fodder to the opposition to attack the saffron party on lines of ‘divisive politics’.
