What lies ahead for India
This was a good read (“Did Yogi arm-twist Shah, Modi into decision?”, Gulf News, March 19). The announcement of Yogi Adityanath from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as the new Chief Minister of the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP), India, has brought mixed reactions from the opposition on communal card. This appointment was the latest dramatic development in UP politics.
Proving his popularity and leadership to the people of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the recent election victory, his calculated appointment may bring a new turn in UP politics. Perhaps, Modi wanted to spread his Chief Ministers in all sections of the society and demonstrate to the people that his party is purely secular and not communal. This is a sudden change in UP politics. Will his new concept work? Let’s wait and see. In the end, everyone deserves a calm and peaceful life.
