Yogi Adityanath becomes UP CM

Lucknow: Creating history, Yogi Adityanath took oath as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister for a new term in office after completing a full five-year term, a feat none of his predecessors has been able to achieve. The Yogi Adityanath government, which begins its second term today (March 25, 2022), will focus on youth, education, health, women, employment generation, and infrastructural development.

According to sources, these policies will consolidate BJP's socio-political positioning, ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeks a third consecutive term.  Keeping 2024 Lok Sabha polls in mind, it's important for the party to build a solid foundation. With this in mind, the new Cabinet has been formed. 

Yogi Adityanath took oath as the CM of UP for the second time. Like the first time, in Yogi Sarkar 2.0, there will be 2 Deputy CMs again. Keshav Prasad Maurya and Brajesh Pathak are the two deputy CMs of UP. While this is the second term for Keshav Maurya as Deputy CM, Dinesh Sharma has been replaced by Brajesh Pathak.
