UP CM Adityanath meets PM Modi in Parliament

UP CM Adityanath meets PM Modi in Parliament

"With the choice of a very communal, Hindutva champion like Yogi Adityanath, the BJP is going to pursue a policy of clear polarisation, which will effectively mean the consolidation of a hardline Hindutva ideology not just in Uttar Pradesh but in the country", Jha told IANS. In 2002, an attack on pilgrims returning from Ayodhya led to riots in Gujarat while Modi was chief minister - which once led the U.S.to deny him a visa.

Also in attendance was former chief minister of the state Akhilesh Yadav, along with his father and Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav.

The Chief Minister later in the day will meet Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah, Union Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj and party veteran Lal Krishna Advani and then depart for Lucknow by evening 5:50 pm.

Now, in Yogi Adityanath's new council of ministers there is one Muslim representative and one Yadav while there is a surfeit of nominees from Thakurs, Brahmins, OBCs, SCs and other caste groups.

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

In the last few days, the BJP has received a lot of flak for choosing the 44-year-old firebrand leader, known for his hate speeches against the minority community, as chief minister of Uttar Pradesh.

The BJP swept to power in the Uttar Pradesh assembly election, decimating the opposition and winning 312 of the 403 seats.

Following the Chief Minister designate's orders, all the District Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) has been called to ensure law and order is maintained. "He has been betrayed and so have been the Brahmins, whose votes were taken by the BJP". Mr Modi himself contested and won the 2014 general election from the holy city of Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.

Meanwhile, BJP leader and central cabinet minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said that Yogi Adityanath, a Gorakhpur MP, would lead Uttar Pradesh on the development path.

Bay Area Braces For Rain With Approaching Storms
Temperatures will remain on the cool side, with daytime highs reaching the mid 60s, and nighttime lows dipping to the low 50s. Since Oct. 1, San Diego International Airport has recorded 11.63 inches of rain, which is 2.96 inches above normal.

Analysts also see Mr Adityanath's appointment as a sign that the BJP would be pushing its Hindu nationalist agenda with greater fervour in the run-up to the 2019 general election, and as a test of Mr Modi's pledge of inclusive governance. In democracy be it a Maulvi or a Yogi, everybody has the right to hold political and constitutional office, if he or she is democratically elected.
