Yogi in Delhi, discussing formation of a new government
 
New Delhi: After winning the assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh with a nearly two-thirds majority, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday met the top leadership of the BJP including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and discussed the formation of the new state government. Yogi Adityanath arrived at Ghaziabad's Hindon airport this afternoon and from there reached BJP's national organization general secretary BL Santosh's residence.

Yogi then met Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu at 3 pm. After this he proceeded to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his residence. After meeting the PM, Yogi met BJP President Jagat Prakash Nadda. He is scheduled to meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah at night. Breaking the 37-year-old record, the BJP has won the state assembly elections for the second time with a two-thirds majority. However, 11 ministers including Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya have lost their seats.

Yogi Adityanath's purpose of this visit is to discuss the formation and nature of the new government with the national leadership. Experts say that the swearing-in of the new government is likely to take place after Holi. The new government will try to strike a balance between caste and region. There is also talk about the idea of having four Deputy Chief Ministers who represent different parts of the state.

Brijesh Pathak (Brahmin leader), Shrikant Sharma (elected from Mathura), Swatantra Dev Singh (party's state president and Kurmi leader) and Smt Baby Rani Maurya of Jatav Samaj are the prominent names for the post of Deputy Chief Minister. Being the big leader of Other Backward Classes(OBC), Keshav Prasad Maurya can also be made Deputy Chief Minister again. As ministers, veterans like Satish Mahana and Suresh Khanna have also reached the assembly after winning the elections again.

Satish Mahana has won the assembly elections for the eighth time while Suresh Khanna has become the MLA from Shahjahanpur for the record 9th time. Pankaj Singh, who won from Noida by more than 1.81 lakh votes and Ravi Sharma, the senior-most MLA in Bundelkhand, elected for the third consecutive time from Jhansi Nagar, are also being named as potential ministers.
