BJP has got a big victory in Uttar Pradesh. The BJP alliance has captured 273 seats in the 403-seat assembly. The new government can be sworn in after March 20 in the state. With this, Yogi Adityanath will once again become the Chief Minister of UP.
It is certain that Yogi Adityanath will become the Chief Minister of UP again. But will there be deputy CM again in his cabinet? If yes, then how many? Two, three or even this number can go up to four. Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma were the two deputy CMs in Yogi’s previous government. Maurya was made the Deputy CM from the backward caste quota and Sharma from the Brahmin quota. It is almost certain that Dinesh Sharma will be out of Yogi’s cabinet this time. It is being said that some big responsibility can be given to him at the national level in the organization. BJP did not even make him contest the election this time. The second deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya has lost the election. But the party is still in the mood to give them the responsibility.
Swatantra Dev Singh can become Deputy CM!
BJP is eyeing the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Accordingly, the formula for making a minister in UP will come out by setting caste equations. Some people of the party want that UP BJP President Swatantra Dev Singh should be made Deputy CM. Swatantra Dev is from the Kurmi fraternity. Instead of him, Keshav Prasad Maurya should be made the President of UP BJP by giving the responsibility of the organization. The decision on this has to be taken in Delhi. Yogi Adityanath is reaching Delhi tomorrow morning. Where he will meet BJP National President JP Nadda, Home Minister Amit Shah and PM Narendra Modi. He will also have a meeting with the party’s organization general secretary BS Santosh. UP BJP President Swatantra Dev Singh and Organization Minister Sunil Bansal have also been called to Delhi. A decision on the cabinet is expected from the date of swearing in tomorrow’s marathon meeting.
Baby Rani Maurya’s name is also ahead in the race
There is also a big discussion that Baby Rani Maurya can also be made Deputy CM. Baby Rani, who was the Governor of Uttarakhand, is the National Vice President of BJP. He is from Jatav fraternity. She has been elected MLA for the first time from the Dalit stronghold Agra. The BJP has a well-thought-out strategy behind bringing it from the Governor of Uttarakhand and making it an MLA in UP. By giving her a big responsibility in power, BJP wants to make Mayawati’s Jatav vote bank its own. BSP is slowly weakening and this is the time when BJP snatches these votes from Mayawati. CSDS survey shows that this time 21 percent Jatav people have voted for BJP. This society can ease the way for BJP’s victory in the next Lok Sabha elections. Aseem Arun also comes from this fraternity, who has been elected MLA for the first time from Kannauj. Before joining politics, he was the police commissioner of Kanpur. He can also get a place in the Yogi cabinet. Asim Arun, who was an IPS officer, had only 9 years of service left.
Pathak can get responsibility in lieu of Dinesh Sharma
If three or four deputy CMs are made, then one name can also be of Brajesh Pathak. This time there is talk of giving him this responsibility instead of Dinesh Sharma. He has always been vocal about Brahmins and their demands. The blessings of Amit Shah, JP Nadda to Rajnath Singh have also been on him. This time he has been elected MLA from Lucknow Cantt. Many times he has spoken openly against the state government as well.
Daya Shankar Singh, who was elected MLA from Ballia, can also be made a minister. He has been an old worker of the party. His wife Swati Singh was still a minister in the Yogi government. This time both the ministers Anand Swaroop Shukla and Upendra Tiwari have lost the elections from Ballia. In such a situation, the claim of Dayashankar increases further. Amit Shah, Yogi Adityanath He is considered close to Dharmendra Pradhan.
Pankaj Singh may get ministerial charge
It is also news that this time Pankaj Singh can also be made a minister in UP. He is the son of Defense Minister Rajnath Singh. He has been elected MLA from Noida for the second time. Some shocking faces from backward and SC society can also be made ministers. Especially from those areas where the party’s performance was either very bad or very good. There is talk of giving responsibility again to ministers like Mahendra Singh, Siddharth Nath Singh and Shrikant Sharma.
It is also possible that this time no one should be made Deputy CM. Political message can also be given by giving big portfolios to big faces. Such is the thinking of a big leader of the party.
