Last Sunday, Yogi Adityanath hurriedly left his home for over two decades in a chartered aircraft sent for him to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah. "It was an important meeting," he later said but insisted he wasn't in the race for the next chief minister. And he was right. From where he stood, there was no race. A few hours later, he was anointed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and took charge of the country's most populous state the next day. He has been at work since then. Today, he has returned home, Gorakhpur.
