Give income details, Adityanath tells Ministers

Give income details, Adityanath tells Ministers”

In Gorakhpur, 300km to the east, a seer from Haridwar who had come to celebrate Adityanath's political elevation had to look beyond the continent to find a fitting analogy for the yogi's pre-eminence. "Today he is chief minister of the state; in future he would be leader of the country". 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.

In 2015, Adityanath's comments yet again led to public outrage when he said that those who oppose "surya namaskar" are free to leave India.

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.

Outgoing chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and his father and Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav also attended the function.The Adityanath government has a total of 24 cabinet ministers, including two deputy CMs, nine MoS (independent charge) and 13 ministers of state.

Announcing the decision after a meeting of legislators in Lucknow, Union Urban Development Minister and Information and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu said that the UP result was a "watershed moment" in the history of BJP.

The oath ceremony was taking place with the presence of numerous eminent guests, which included LK Advani, Narendra Modi and Chief Ministers from various other states.

Uttar Pradesh sends 80 MPs to Lok Sabha and is extremely important in the BJP's scheme of things.

However, in choosing these leaders, the BJP has also ignored western and north-western Uttar Pradesh, from where it swept the 2017 elections.

Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) leader Brinda Karat said the RSS wanted to make Uttar Pradesh the centre of its Hindutva project.

Further, he disclosed in his 2014 election affidavit that he faced criminal cases including attempted murder; intimidation; promoting religious enmity; defiling a place of worship; rioting; and trespassing on burial places.

Priyanka Chaturvedi, a Congress party spokeswoman, tweeted that Adityanath had gone from the fringe of Indian politics to the mainstream, adding that the "mask is truly off" the Modi government. After the landslide victory in Uttar Pradesh, there were questions within the party about whether a hardliner should be made the chief minister.
