Yogi Adityanath Government And Cabinet Ministers Of Uttar Pradesh

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other leaders of India's ruling party attended a ceremony in the Uttar Pradesh state capital of Lucknow, where Yogi Adityanath took the oath of office.

Trinamool Congress MP Saugata Roy said: "The BJP is in majority and it is their prerogative as to whom they name as the Chief Minister".

Keshav Prasad Maurya, the party's state unit chief, and Dinesh Sharma, BJP's national vice president, were inducted as deputy chief ministers.

Long-time RSS activist Trivendra Singh Rawat was on Friday elected the leader of the BJP Legislature Party and the next Chief Minister of Uttarakhand. There are precedents for Hindu devotees taking high office, he said, including Uma Bharti, a former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh state who is now Modi's water resources minister.

The BJP, which did not field any Muslim candidate in UP, has appointed former cricketer Mohsin Raza as a minister of state. Yogi probably knew that building confidence among all sections of the society was primary job for him so in his maiden interaction with media as Chief Minister he repeatedly spoke about development and how all sections of the society have been deprived of basic necessities during previous regimes.

Though the Council of Ministers is dominated by upper castes, Adityanath tried to strike a caste balance in his Government.


The central observers will most likely inform the MLAs about the BJP top brass' choice which will be subsequently endorsed at the meeting tomorrow.

Sending a strong message against corruption on day one, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday asked all his ministers to provide details of their income, moveable and immoveable assets, within 15 days.

As the month-long Uttar Pradesh poll progressed, the rhetoric used by Modi and his campaign chief Amit Shah struck an increasingly harsh tone: In one speech Modi said villages with graveyards should have crematoriums too - a veiled reference to the different burial practices of Muslims and Hindus.

After a stupendous win in the assembly election, the party can ill afford to lower its guard for 2019.

The BJP, which won 312 of the 403 seats in the state, has sought to strike a regional and caste balance in its 47-member Cabinet. He said this mandate is to bring change and we will bring change in the positive direction. What makes him the most desirable choice to lead Uttar Pradesh on behalf of the Bhartiya Janta Party?
