BJP who achieved the landslide victory in Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, by attaining 325 seats in their favour, is all set to form their government in Uttar Pradesh. The name for the CM post is still sceptical between Manoj Sinha and Rajnath Singh.The swearing-in ceremony is going to be held on March 19 at Smriti Upwan in Lucknow. In the swearing-in ceremony, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah is likely to grace their presence at Smriti Upwan in Lucknow on Sunday.
As per sources from top officials of UP govt. , the preparations for the ceremony has already begun.
On Friday Manoj Sinha, while speaking to media denied his name for the Post of CM in UP.He said he is “neither in the race” nor does he “know of any race like this. Manoj Sinha is a three-time MP from Ghazipur, Currently, he is the Minister of State (Independent Charge) of Communications and Minister of State for Railways in the Government of India and he is also an Alumni of IIT-BHU
On Thursday Rajnath Nath Singh replied to reporter ‘Yeh sab Bekar ki bat hai’ when the reporter asked the question Is Raj Nath Singh the next CM ?.Currently, Rajnath Singh is a Home Minister under Modi regime.He has also been the CM of UP before.Raj Nath Singh might shy away for the position of CM, due to two reasons, one he holds the second position in the Central Government, which have slight chances for him to become the PM further, second there will be a lot of interference as well as directions will be given from PMO office which might get difficult for Singh to run the UP Govt.
BJP who is known for displaying CM card at the very last moment is also doing the same for UP and Uttarakhand assembly elections.Though, the face of the CM for UP will get unravel on Sunday.
Senior BJP leaders told News Leak Centre, there is a meeting of all the selected BJP Mla’s on Saturday at 4 PM in Lucknow, which will be chaired by an observer, who wille especially go to Lucknow from Delhi for the meeting where they will officially put the stamp for the face of CM in Uttar Pradesh.
If Rajnath Singh or other minister become the face of CM in Up, then there will be a lot of rejigging in the Central Government, as Defence Ministry also went to Arun Jaitely after Manahor Parrikar became the CM of Goa.Now Jaitley is handling two major portfolios in the Central Government.If other senior Ministers come to UP, then Modi Govt will get in the quandary.
News Leak Centre will keep the viewers posted on the further development.
