Yogi AdityaNath, Noted HateMonger Who approved Dead Muslim women’s rape is BJP’s Pick for Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh

Swarajya,Delhi: The suspense is finally over. The Bharatiya Janata Party has decided to appoint firebrand leader from eastern Uttar Pradesh and seven-time Member of Parliament from Gorakhpur, Yogi Adityanath as Chief Minister to run the biggest state of India, ANI reported.

Earlier, the reports suggested that the BJP top brass may pick Union Telecom Minister and Ghazipur MP Manoj Sinha for the coveted post owing to his large experience in the party operations. Sinha, however, had been staunchly denying any possibilities of his ascension as the Chief Minister. “Neither I am in the race (for UP CM) nor do I know of any such race,” Sinha told the media yesterday.

As several sections of the media quoted reports that said Sinha was almost finalised for the coveted chair, hundreds of Maurya’s and Yogi Adityanath’s supporters took to the streets and staged a demonstration demanding that their leader be made the Chief Minister. “The BJP secured so many seats in the state because of Adityanath. We don’t oppose anybody who’s in the running, but we want Yogi ji to be the Chief Minister,” they said.

Adityanath’s ascension will strengthen the 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’. The BJP central leadership was keen on picking the right person for the top post in Uttar Pradesh as it is crucial for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his bid to win a second term at the Centre in 2019.

The BJP held its legislature meet to elect the new Chief Minister. Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu and BJP general secretary Bhupendra Yadav were also be present at the meeting as party’s central observers.

The swearing-in ceremony of the new Chief Minister will be held tomorrow in presence of Prime Minister Modi.
