Yogi Adityanath's First Speech As UP Chief Minister In Gorakhpur: Highlights

Yogi Adityanath Live: He addressed the rally for the first time as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister.

Yogi Adityanth, who was sworn-in as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister on March 19, addressed his first public meeting as the state's chief. He addressed a rally in Gorakhpur, his hometown, where he returned nearly a week after he was appointed the Chief Minister of India's most populous state. The  BJP came to power in UP with a massive victory on March 11, when the counting of votes took place after a major five-state Assembly elections ended. Large hoardings were put up on the street in Gorakhpur for his grand welcome. Before the public function, Mr Adityanath had met his supporters, and later, district officials. The state's former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today took a jibe on the 44-year-old leader, saying "The Chief Minister has said he is one year older than me. I say you (Adityanath) may be older in age but are far behind in terms of work." This was Mr Yadav's retort to Mr Adityanath's jab in Lok Sabha earlier this week.

Here are the live updates of Yogi Adityanath's speech:
  • I am thankful to the 22 crore people of UP who gave the BJP, on the insistence of the world's most popular politician PM Modi and Amit Shah, a chance to form the government.
  • PM Modi's development programmes are being made available to all the citizens. He has entrusted me with the responsibility to make the dreams of the state true.
