Yogi Adityanath completes one month as CM: A look at how he set Uttar Pradesh on transformation path in 30 days

FYI / Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

It has been 30 days since Yogi Adityanath took oath as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. Much like the surprise nomination of Yogi as the Uttar Pradesh CM, his tenure so far has also been surprising — something that may have baffled even his most ardent critics. It has now become clear that Yogi was not the first choice as the CM of India’s largest state for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Union minister Manoj Sinha was. But when a majority of the newly elected BJP MLAs in Uttar Pradesh rallied behind Yogi, PM Modi couldn’t say no to their choice. The support of MLAs for Yogi also brought his charismatic appeal on BJP cadres as well as common electors of the state to the fore. In the 30 days, Yogi has managed to keep people surprised and make them believe in BJP’s pre-election promise of ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas ( everyone’s support, everyone’s development) but appeasement of none’.
Here we take a look at some of the big decisions taken by Yogi government for the benefit of the people of the state. The decisions have apparently proved Yogi-baiters wrong, but still, the state has a long way to go to realise the full potential of the decisions taken in the last 30 days.
