In the aftermath of the speculations on the possible Chief Ministerial candidate for Uttar Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday evening finally crowned its firebrand leader Yogi Adityanath for the top post in the state. The 44-year old five times Lok Sabha member from Gorakhpur constituency has been elected as the 32nd CM of the politically crucial state. After a week long high decibel suspense over party’s CM face in UP, the saffron party chose Adityanath soon after the oath taking ceremony in Uttarakhand. Soon after the news was confirmed by Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu during a press conference today, advocates of Adityanath bombarded the micro-blogging site Twitter with their support and joy. Here’s how Twitter lauded BJP’s decision to designate the firebrand leader as UP CM.

Adityanath is a long-time BJP MP from Gorakhpur and has been winning the Gorakhpur seat in UP since 1998. At 26, he was the youngest MP in the 12th Lok Sabha. Soon after the BJP created an electoral mandate by winning 312 seats in a 403-member house in UP, changes in terms of development and religion is being expected from the saffron party. The decision was taken after an internal party meeting held at Lok Bhawan that saw central observers including Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav, BJP vice-president Om Mathur, state party chief Keshav Prasad Maurya and other senior party leaders in full attendance.
