Yogi Adityanath who is a five-time Lok Sabha MP from Gorakhpur, was elected BJP Legislature Party leader at a meeting of MLAs in Lucknow on Saturday. After the meeting, he met Ram Naik and staked claim to form the government in the state.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been at pains to highlight his agenda of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’, and appointing a known Hindutva promoter as the chief minister looked to have been an anomaly.
