Yogi Adityanath takes charge as UP CM

Apart from the names stated above, Lakshmi Narayan Choudhury, Chetan Chauhan, Shrikant Sharma, Jai Pratap Singh, Om Prakash Rajbhar, Brijesh Pathak, Nand Kumar Nandi, Sindharthnath Singh, Mukut Bihari Verma, Ashutosh Tandon, Rajendra Pratap Singh and Moti Singh were among the other leaders who took oath as the cabinet ministers of Yogi Adiyanath Government in Uttar Pradesh.

Keshav Prasad Maurya, the party's state unit chief, and Dinesh Sharma, BJP's national vice president, were inducted as deputy chief ministers.

"Everyone who is prejudging the decision is doing it at their own peril - these arguments were also used in the case of Prime Minister Narendra Modi", BJP spokesman Nalin Kohli told Reuters.

The swearing-in ceremony took place at Lucknow's Smriti Upvan. He, later, met the Governor and staked claim to form the government in the state.

In a brief media interaction, he said his government will pursue the agenda of "sabka saath, sabka vikas" and fulfil all the promises made by the party during the polls. He also had a meeting with former Chief Secretary of UP Nripendra Mishra.

G20 leaders fail to reach agreements on free trade
Europe was keen on adding that trade should be "rules-based", meaning subject to rules of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). The G-20 is an informal forum on economic cooperation made up of 19 countries plus the European Union.

A source close to the powerful Hindu nationalist umbrella group to which the BJP belongs, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), said Adityanath would undergo a complete image makeover to repackage him as a moderate reformer. After the landslide victory in Uttar Pradesh, there were questions within the party about whether a hardliner should be made the chief minister.

"For me, Modi ji being the Prime Minister of India and my younger brother Yogi ji becoming Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh is the best news of 21st century", Bharti told ANI. It is often said that the road to Delhi or federal power in Indian politics runs through Uttar Pradesh.

After a stupendous win in the assembly election, the party can ill afford to lower its guard for 2019.

It would also be pertinent to mention here that the BJP's vote share in the recently-concluded Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections has come down slightly to almost 40 per cent from 2014's 42.3 per cent.

After assuming charge, the UP CM reached out to the people through a series of tweets via his new official twitter handle assuring everyone irrespective of caste, creed and religion of clean, transparent and good governance. He said, the mandate is for development, and against corruption and black money. What makes him the most desirable choice to lead Uttar Pradesh on behalf of the Bhartiya Janta Party?
