Adityanath, who is a five-time Lok Sabha MP from Gorakhpur has taken oath as the CM on Sunday and after being named for the post, he met Ram Naik and staked claim to form the government in the state. The oath taking ceremony was attended by BJP prominent leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Party President Amit Shah. This is the first time when the Chief Ministers of all the NDA-ruled were present at the ceremony.

PM Narendra Modi has been at pains to highlight his agenda of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’, and has appointed a known Hindutva promoter as the chief minister. However, with the appointment of the two deputy CMs, the development agenda is expected to get a major boost as the new government gets into the saddle and prepares its economic policies. Moving forward, party’s agenda will be to prepare the state for the critically important 2019 elections and the task of the trio will really be cut out.
