Uttar Pradesh govt will work for development of the state: Venkaiah Naidu

Uttar Pradesh govt will work for development of the state: Venkaiah Naidu

Wishing the new government well, Surjewala said "we sincerely hope" the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh "will now. concentrate upon fulfilling the promises made to people", including waiving loans of farmers, reducing power tariff and creating jobs.

Adityanath's appointment will necessitate a byelection in Gorakhpur, which could perhaps see the coming together of the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Congress on the same platform to take on the BJP by fielding a common candidate.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reiterated time and again that his government stands for "Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas" (development without discriminating against anyone).

Manoj Kumar Sinha's name is being pitched for the post of Uttar Pradesh chief minister, where the Bharatiya Janata Party won a landslide victory with a three-fourth majority.

Maurya, the MP from Phulpur in Allahabad, will be the Deputy Chief Minister apart from senior BJP leader and Lucknow Mayor Dinesh Sharma.

Trump slams ruling against travel ban as 'unprecedented judicial overreach'
The president also said he wanted to go back to the original order, and elaborated on who it's meant to target. This is a watered-down version of the first one.

With a saffron robe-clad mahant at the helm in Uttar Pradesh, the fear is the fine line between state and religion, so vital for a secular state, could just be blurred.

Adityanath is a hardliner who is known for his unapologetic pro-Hindutva views, and has often been at the centre of controversies. However, the latter is considered to be a more influential leader, owing to his dedicated cadre of Hindu Yuva Vahini. His selection of Adityanath as chief minister of a communally sensitive state has, for once, created doubt in the minds of his supporters that Modi can't always withstand pressure from RSS and Sangh Parivar.

BJP's state unite general secretary Vijay Bahadur Pathak, while confirming the date for the legislators' meet also informed that two central observers - M Venkaiah Naidu and Bhupendra Yadav - will be here to oversee the election of the new leader. The hands of such leaders appeared to have been forced by him.

Interestingly, the newly appointed Uttarakhand chief minister, Trivendra Singh Rawat, is also from the same community.

According to reports, Home Minister Rajnath Singh is the most favoured in the party to be their representative in UP.
