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. However, with the appointment of the two deputies, the development agenda is expected to get a major boost as the new government gets into the saddle and prepares its economic policies. On their agenda will be to prepare the state for the critically important 2019 elections and the task of the trio will really be cut out.
