So, when the BJP picked Yogi Adityanath as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Bhagat posted a series of tweets expressing his displeasure over the appointment. Without mincing his words, he remarked about the chief minister designate : “#YogiAdityanath as UP CM. Because when you make the naughtiest guy in class the class monitor, he behaves the best”.

Bhagat didn’t stop there. He again took a dig at Adityanath and wrote, “If you are in politics and the Indian media starts hating you, you have a really bright future. #modi #yogiadityanath”. Referring to the BJP’s agenda, he wrote,”With the pro-development people in the bag, it was time for the BJP to cater to its other base, the pro-hindutva types. #YogiAdityanath”.
