Six priests from Gorakhnath temple did a six-hour long rudraksh pooja on Lucknow's 5, Kalidas Marg on Monday to "purify" the residence for the muth head and new Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who is said to sleep just four hours a day and pray and meditate multiple times.

"The selection of Adityanath has once again exposed the oft-repeated claim of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that development will be its main agenda", a CPM politburo statement said. He has declared that he will follow the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mantra 'sabka saath, sabka vikas (support of all, development for all)'.

Two deputy chief ministers and 47 other ministers were also sworn in at the ceremony, which came a week after the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party won a landslide victory in state assembly elections. "It would have been better if they (Maurya and Dinesh Sharma) were made cabinet ministers with some departments".

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.

For the first time in the executive and administrative history of the State, the new Chief Minister wanted the officers to take a pledge of Swachchata Abhiyan while making a fervent appeal to start the campaign from their own homes and surroundings. "So this is the decision of the MLAs of Uttar Pradesh which was approved by the central party", Naidu said.

France Issues Terror Warning After School Shooting
Police are urging people to avoid the area. "I was totally panicked", one student at the school, Andreas, told BFM television. France's minister for education, Najat Belkacem, confirmed she would visit the school. "We started running, " he said.


Adityanath distributed copies of the BJP manifesto as required reading and execution, NDTV reported.

The party is back in the state after 15-years by winning 312 seats in the recently held assembly elections.

"It is wrong to criticise Yogi Adityanath's elevation to the post of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister. Yogi Adityanath is above caste but, unfortunately, some people are attributing caste to him", Mr Naidu said.

For a state that has always had law and order issues, the nomination of Yogi Adityanath as the chief minister, only brings more worry and bares open the possibility of a rise in religious intolerance.

Trinamool Congress MP Saugata Roy said: "The BJP is in majority and it is their prerogative as to whom they name as the Chief Minister".
