Challenge myths and superstitions!

Yogi Adityanath, the five-term MP from Gorakhpur, has tirelessly and tirelessly served Uttar Pradesh and its 25 million people as a Karma yogi protecting their interests as Chief Minister since 2017. A Postgraduate in Mathematics from Garhwal University and Peethadheeshwar (Chief Priest) from Goraksha Peeth, Gorakhpur, is not a stereotypical person, rather he is setting new records and covering new milestones. It also challenges several decade-old myths prevalent in the state. The CM is the person who managed to find a balance between politics and religion to live up to people’s expectations.

Hundreds of programs ranging from job creation to development have been implemented by his government. Not only by providing the best road infrastructure but also by establishing an extensive network of roads in the state. There is an almost 24-hour electricity supply in both urban and rural areas. Government jobs were provided to the people of the state in a transparent manner. A free ration has been made available to the poor since the Corona pandemic hit the country. Students receive free Android phones and laptops. More than two dozen new medical schools and hospitals have been inaugurated. Metros in Lucknow and Kanpur have become operational and metro expansion is being planned in half a dozen other cities.

Yogi Adityanath is the first chief minister of the state who visited development project sites for physical supervision in all 75 districts of the state. He has visited every nook and cranny of the state and has visited every district at least four to five times during his current tenure as CM. There are a dozen districts where the Prime Minister has visited an equal number of times. Everyone will appreciate his commitment that even during the Corona infection he did not stop his routine office work. When he recovered from the infection, he was seen serving the victims in every possible way like a brave warrior by visiting the Corona infected districts without any distractions.

There was a prevailing myth that the chief minister of the state lost his job during his visit to Noida. Consequently, several chief ministers used to avoid visiting Noida, whether a follower of the Mayawati Buddhist tradition or the foreign-educated Akhilesh Yadav. Australia education. No one could muster enough courage to shatter this myth. But the Yogi belonging to Nath Sampraday challenged this myth not once or twice but visited Noida about half a dozen times. The guest house in Agra is considered a bad omen for any chief minister who stays there. Rajnath Singh was the last chief minister who stayed there and lost his chair. It was Yogi Adityanath who challenged such superstitions and stayed there at night. Thus, this Assembly election has become a litmus test for Yogi Adityanath as there are several other myths and superstitions to be broken.

If we talk about the political legacy of Gorakshapeeth Mutt, it is very rich and powerful. Mahant Digvijaynath’s resolve to serve the people by joining politics as a Peethadheeshwar under the banner of the Hindu Mahasabha, who entered the Lok Sabha in 1967, was put forward by Mahant Avaidyanath who had been elected to the Assembly of the UP five times and in Parliament four times. . He was one of the main leaders of the Ram Janmabhoomi movement and when he retired from active politics he handed over the Banton to his successor Yogi Adityanath who continues his journey as an invincible warrior for the past 23 years . His political journey started in 1998 as a member of the Lok Sabha of Gorakhpur continues unabated. After being elected five times in Gorakhpur, he became chief minister of the state in 2017. If the BJP manages to retain power in the state this time around, then he would be the first chief minister of the state. State to complete his term and be re-elected. the same time. History will be made when a chief minister is sworn in for the second consecutive term in the UP. Narayan Dutt Tiwari was the Chief Minister under whose leadership the Congress won Assembly election in the undivided UP in 1985, but he became Chief Minister for the second time in 1988. On both occasions, he became the CM for a short time.

So far BJP has given four chief ministers to the state including Kalyan Singh, Ram Prakash Gupta, Rajnath Singh and Yogi Adityanath but the outgoing chief minister is the only chief minister to have completed his term and is the third CM in the state. to complete the term. The other two chief ministers, Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav, completed their terms as chief ministers from 2007 to 2012 and 2012 to 2017, respectively. So far about 21 chief ministers have been sworn in in the state but none of them have been able to complete their terms except these three due to such reasons as they have been changed, the government fell due to a lack of majority or for some other reason.

Meanwhile, the electoral campaign process within the UP has already begun. The election campaign in Uttar Pradesh for the BJP is led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath who is contesting the Assembly election for the first time. Yogi Adityanath has been in the fray from his constituency seat, Gorakhpur Sadar, from where the BJP has won every election since 1989. Gorakhpur and its environs are known to be the stronghold of Mutt. The strength can be gauged from the fact that when the Mutt did not like the BJP candidate for the Assembly election in 2002, it presented Dr. Radha Mohan Das as the Hindu Mahasabha candidate who had won. However, he later joined the BJP. Dr. Radha Mohan Das was elected from the seat since then until the last elections in 2017. Now Yogi Adityanath himself is running for the seat as the chief ministerial candidate of the BJP.
