Uttar Pradesh CM and Deputy CMs to look after major portfolios. Deputy CM Dinesh Sharma likely to handle Parliamentary Affairs, Urban Development, Water Supply. CM Yogi Adityanath likely to look after portfolios like Home, Finance, Housing and Energy.
Newly-appointed Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath said that his government is committed to fulfil all the promises made by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in its election manifesto. Addressing his first press conference after taking the oath of office, Adityanath pledged to work for all sections without bias and said he believed in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s slogan ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’. In an apparent move to allay fears that he, as a long-time hindutva icon, might discriminate against the minorities, Adityanath promised there would be no bias for or against anyone. Now the sworn in ministers will be allocated different suitable portfolios. CM Yogi Adityanath along with his cabinet will meet the UP governor today. It is to be seen now which minister is designated to what responsibility.
