Taking the charge with full enthusiasm from day one, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday asserted that their government would work for all sections of the society without any discrimination, adding that women safety would be prioritised.
"Our Government will work for the welfare of the people. We will work for all the sections of the society without any discrimination. Special efforts will be made for the welfare of the poor, Dalits and backward classes," Chief Minister Adityanath said while addressing the media here.
Adityanath said that in the last 15 years Uttar Pradesh has been left behind in all respects, adding that they would take the state on path of growth and development.
The Chief Minister also ascertained that the government would work towards youth employment in the state.
"We will surely work to improve job crisis," he said.
The ceremony, held in the state capital, saw the swearing-in of 21 cabinet ministers, nine Ministers of State (MoS) with Independent Charge and 13 MoS.
Dinesh Sharma and Keshav Prasad Maurya were sworn-in as the deputy chief ministers of the state.
Yogi Adityanath, a five-time Lok Sabha MP from Gorakhpur, was unanimously elected the BJP Legislature Party leader at a meeting of the newly-elected MLAs in Lucknow last evening. He, later, met the Governor and staked claim to form the government in the state.
Senior party leader and Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu, who was the central observer at the Legislature Party meeting, said it was a watershed moment for the BJP and it has become a common man's party. He said, the mandate is for development, and against corruption and black money.
In the recently held polls in the state, BJP had bagged 312 seats, and its allies 13, taking the alliance's tally to 325 in the 403-member Assembly.
