On Saturday, Gorakhpur MP Yogi Adityanath was chosen as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. He was chosen to lead the Bharatiya Janta Party’s first government in Uttar Pradesh in 15 years.
The BJP party has won the recent elections in Uttar Pradesh with a huge margin. In 2007, Adityanath made into the headlines when wept in parliament accusing the then Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh of targeting him. Adityanath had attended Lok Sabha after spending 11 days in jail for violating prohibitory orders in Gorakhpur. He started to cry while explaining his story. The speaker then promised to look into the matter.
Adityanath’s relation with the BJP party after BJP has faced defeat in 2012 elections. Adityanath started to attend for the party events since then. BJP used his Hinduvata image during 2014 Lok Sabha elections. He was the only one who campaigned for anyone other than himself during the polls. He continued the same in the 2017 assembly elections as well.
