Yogi meets PM Modi, Shah & BJP prez Nadda in New Delhi

LUCKNOW Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Thursday. Yogi’s meeting with the PM follows the BJP’s impressive triumph in three states – Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, fresh after winning the recently concluded Assembly elections in the State, held a series of meetings in New Delhi on Sunday, including with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on government formation. A big issue that Mr. Adityanath needs to grapple with, along with leaders in Delhi, is the future of Keshav Prasad Maurya, who was Deputy Chief Minister but lost his election from Sirathu. Mr. Maurya still remains an MLC, and is popular within the party and represents a significant non-Yadav OBC community, a key factor in the BJP’s victory.

During the meeting, Yogi reportedly discussed with the PM the progress of the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya. The PM is scheduled to attend the consecration ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya on January 22. Yogi also brought to the PM’s attention that the international airport in Ayodhya was ready, requesting his time for the inauguration of the Ayodhya airport. The PM is likely to visit Varanasi on December 17, and various programs organized there may also have been discussed.
