Chief minister Yogi Adityanath promises UP's all-round developmentBy Darlene Powers Mar 22, 2017
A report published in the Hindustan Time says that twenty-four of the 78 Union ministers of the Narendra Modi cabinet have criminal cases registered against them.
Now, he said, no trader in Gorakhpur pays "goonda tax", the town does not witness abductions and there are no communal riots in eastern Uttar Pradesh.
Echoing similar views, another Congress leader Pramod Tiwari said the question of Adiyanath coming between Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav does not arise as he was not the face of chief ministerial candidate at the time of elections.
The BJP's electoral triumph in Uttar Pradesh - it won 312 of 403 assembly seats - is seen by analysts as a harbinger for Mr Modi and the BJP in the 2019 parliamentary elections, as they are strongly favoured to win another five-year term in office. He and his party chose to have his farewell from the parliament in the most unconventional way by providing him the most legitimate forum to give his acceptance speech as chief minister and farewell speech as an MP, rolled into one. He insisted that he will be the chief minister for every caste, every creed, every citizen and every region of Uttar Pradesh trying to silence his critiques.

Yechury also accused Yogi Adityanath of always speaking against the Muslims and the Dalits.
Long years ago, in April 1999 another chief minister had become the centre of attention. Nomination of Yogi Adityanath as the CM has raised alarm among the minorities of UP, which were already facing discrimination and cruel treatment at the hands of Hindu majority.
But the BJP faced criticism for choosing a leader who has propagated converting India, a multi-faith country, into a Hindu nation.
It is an established fact of the rough and tumble world of Indian electoral politics that the party which wins Uttar Pradesh wins the country. Adityanath told the House that those days he was very thin and Barnala asked him thrice if he was from Gorakhpur to which he said yes. This move, represented as Modi's personal decision to uproot rampant corruption within India, was met with much criticism and scepticism within both academic and political circles.
