Gorakhpur Lok Sabha MP Yogi Adityanath ' title=' Yogi Adityanath '>Yogi Adityanath was on Saturday named as the next Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister in a meeting of the newly-elected BJP legislators here, party sources said.

Adityanath's name was proposed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Suresh Khanna and was supported by Union Information and Broadcasting Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu.

 

Known for his firebrand Hindutva image, the 44-year-old Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader comes from the Rajput community and is the head of the Gorakhnath Mutt in Gorakhpur, which has millions of followers from eastern UP and neighbouring Nepal.

 

He has been elected as the Lok Sabha MP from Gorakhpur uninterrupted from 1998. 

 

A science graduate, Adityanath is popular for his fiery speeches among his supporters but has antagonised minorities by his speeches and statements like Love Jihad, Ghar Wapasi.

The firebrand leader, popular in east UP districts surrounding Gorakhpur, Adityanath was the second most sought-after campaigner in the state in the assembly elections after Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

 

Adityanath's original name was Ajay Singh Bisht. He has done BSc in Maths from HNB Garhwal University. A very popular leader in UP, he is known for his ability to attract eyeballs with his fiery speech. 

 

The new Chief Minister along with his Cabinet colleagues will take oath on March 19 at Kanshiram Smriti Upvan,Governor Ram Naik said in a statement yesterday.
