An editorial in Shiv Sena's mouthpiece 'Saamana' said Yogi Adityanath proved all his critics wrong and was taking one decision after the other in all seriousness for the welfare of the people in his state. "He is striving in a commendable way to elevate his state from ruins and he is very serious in his work," it said.
Shiv Sena especially praised Mr Adityanath for deciding to write off loans of farmers, a demand which all parties in Maharashtra had raised.
"If a bit of this seriousness is imbibed by rulers of Maharashtra, they will surely be blessed. Yogi in his first cabinet meet announced a loan waiver for farmers but here the government has only said it would look into the Yogi model and appears to be waiting for debt-burdened farmers to commit suicide," the Shiv Sena said.
"Wearing the mask of seriousness without imbibing the qualities is of no use. Those who are in power here should borrow seriousness from Yogi Adityanath," it said.
