Newly-appointed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday said that his government is committed to fulfill all the promises made by the BJP in its election manifesto.

Addressing his first press conference as the Chief Minister and in an apparent move to allay fears that he, as a long-time Hindutva icon, might discriminate against the minorities, Adityanath promised there would be no bias for or against anyone. Adityanath said: “Our government is fully committed to fulfil the promises that were made (before elections).”

He also thanked the people of state for giving a huge mandate to the BJP.

“Our government will work for all sections of the society without any discrimination. It will work towards youth employment in the state. We will surely work to improve job crisis”, the chief minister said.

Adityanath further said, “In 15 years, Uttar Pradesh has been left behind in all respects. Past governments have hurt state’s growth. We will take UP on path of growth and will work for the welfare of people.”

Calling the swearing in of a new BJP government a historic occasion, the Chief Minister recalled BJP ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, saying his government was committed to fulfilling his dream of antyodaya.

Agriculture, he said, would be made the base for all development work in Uttar Pradesh.

Adityanath was sworn in as the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh on Sunday. The oath was administered by Governor Ram Naik which took place at Smriti Upvan in Lucknow. Besides, Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma took over as the deputy chief ministers in a Cabinet which will have 23 other ministers.  A large bumber of leaders and ministers attended the ceremony including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mulayam SInh Yadav AKhilesh Yadav and others. He is the 21st CM of the state and is five time MP from Gorakhpur.

Cabinet ministers Shrikant Sharma and Sidharth Nath Singh were named the official spokespersons of the new government.

The spokespersons later told the media that the Chief Minister had directed his ministers to declare their assets within the next fortnight and to avoid making statements in the public. (With IANS inputs)

      As UP is the crucial state that has the potential to change the course of India, implementation of Uniform Civil Code should start right from UP. Take it seriously to decide on Muslims women's right to civility and dignity where Tripple Talaq and multiple wives syndrome have been haunting them. To address the issue:lt;br/gt;1. Tripple Talaq should be banned orlt;br/gt;2. Tripple Talaq should be encouraged, in which case wife should be able to claim half of the property as equal partner in the marriage orlt;br/gt;3. Women should be able to decide whether they want a Muslim marriage or marriage under law of the land. The way the marriage takes place should be the way to annul it. Let the Muslim women decide under which law they want to get married. BJP owes great deal to muslim women to its success in UP and it is normal to pay the favor back for their benefit and the benefit of India as a w.

          How come BJP is different from congress, when most of the leaders are imported from different parties. This shows there is no ideology, all are opportunist waiting for bones.

                  Now India became a most communal and racist country along with the govt which is led by the hard core extremists who will spare to discriminate non-Hindu especially Muslim community. Very unfortunate.
