Maurya is being considered as one of the front-runners for the chief minister’s post after the BJP and its allies rallied to a landslide win in 325 out of the state’s 403 constituencies. Even though the party’s highest decision making body, the parliamentary board, has not decided on a name yet, Maurya’s OBC credentials and his organisational skills are considered his assets and might land him the coveted post. Maurya, who met the prime minister recently, left it to the parliamentary board to make a decision. Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Yogi Adityanath and Kalraj Mishra are some of the other favourites.

    Yoga (or even sport) must be made mandatory for all BJP members. One hour Yoga cl at work place before they start the work. Without good health how they are going to deliver!lt;br/gt;Manadatory Yoga plan will set the political cl in compeion and Yoga as a w will benefit. lt;br/gt;Those who do not like Yoga (read more of opposition) will languish behind healthwise and stamina wise and no body to blame for this!
