Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday went to the seat of Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Akhilesh Yadav to greet him, ending the intensity of the recent elections.
The two leaders exchanged words.
Yogi Adityanath, who has been sworn in as MLA, welcomed the other members and called upon the government to help fulfill the aspirations of the people and ensure the development of the state.
After Chief Minister Adityanath, Akhilesh Yadav was sworn in and was greeted by his party legislators who cheered him on with slogans.
Protem Speaker Ramapati Shastri administered the oath.
Akhilesh Yadav, who was named Leader of the Opposition after Adityanath, has been sworn in as MLA.
Although Adityanath won the recent state elections from Gorakhpur Urban constituency, Yadav Karhal was elected MLA from the constituency.
Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel on Sunday said that no one can break the Modi-Yogi alliance, adding that the BJP has retained power in UP with the support of a large number of people, including a large number of North Indians who have settled in Surat, Gujarat.
He was referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Yogi Adityanath, who were sworn in as Uttar Pradesh chief ministers for a second term at a ceremony on Friday, where the prime minister was present.
In the UP Assembly elections held earlier this year, the BJP-led alliance won 273 out of 403 seats. Although the BJP won 255 seats, its ally Nishad Party and its own party (S) won 18 seats. This is the first time in more than three decades that a party has won two consecutive assembly elections in a key state.
“We have formed a government in Uttar Pradesh, friends. No one can break the Modi-Yogi alliance … no one can do it. Many people have supported them in achieving this. From here (Surat) several people went there (UP) for preaching, ”he said.
It’s 35 years since a team returned to power for a second term in a row, making history, he added.
“For this, you must congratulate us … a large number of North Indians have settled in Surat, and they have supported us to achieve this,” said the former Gujarat Chief Minister.
