Apparently referring to the results of the recently -concluded UP Assembly elections, Adityanath said that people rose above casteism and poured in their support for nationalism, development and good governance. The barrier that was seen in the implementation of central schemes in the state has been broken during the past five years, he added. “People for the first time felt that house for the poor could also be built. For the first time, it was felt that money can go directly into the account of the poor,” PTI quoted Adityanath as saying.

Adityanath’s swearing-in ceremony will take place on Friday in the presence of PM Modi and top BJP leaders.
