Newly-appointed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday in the national capital. The 44-year-old, who became the 21st chief minister of the state, is likely to discuss portfolios with the BJP top brass. He also held meetings with Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
Earlier on Sunday, Adityanath had called upon his Cabinet ministers to declare their source of income, movable and immovable assets. The IAS officers have been asked to furnish details regarding their assets and income within 15 days in a format to be provided by the CM’s office.
The priest-turned politician’s team has 22 cabinet ministers, nine ministers of state with independent charge, 13 ministers of state besides having two deputies in the form of Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma.
After his swearing-in ceremony, Adityanath had vowed to work for all sections of the society without any discrimination while pursuing the agenda of ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas.’
