Lucknow: Creating history, Yogi Adityanath is all set to take oath as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister for a new term in office after completing a full five-year term, a feat none of his predecessors has been able to achieve. The Yogi Adityanath government, which begins its second term today (March 25, 2022), will focus on youth, education, health, women, employment generation, and infrastructural development.
According to sources, these policies will consolidate BJP’s socio-political positioning, ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeks a third consecutive term.
