Giving information about the detailed discussion held by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath with Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP President JP Nadda on Thursday, sources said that with the blessings of the Sangh, Yogi Adityanath will remain the Chief Minister and soon the expansion and reshuffle of the state cabinet will take place. Under which former IAS Arvind Kumar Sharma and newly-inducted former Union minister Jitin Prasada in BJP can be made ministers. But none of them will become Deputy Chief Minister. It is likely that the current Deputy Chief Ministers Dinesh Sharma and Keshav Prasad Maurya will continue in their respective posts and their portfolios will also remain with them. But the representation of backwards and Dalits in the cabinet will be increased so that social balance is maintained under the protection of Hindutva. Therefore, it is possible that Anupriya Patel from Apna Dal may get a place in the Center or her husband Dr. Ashish Patel in the state cabinet. Anupriya Patel also met Home Minister Amit Shah with BJP leaders on Thursday.

According to sources, after making Arvind Sharma a member of the Legislative Council, there was increasing pressure from the central leadership to give very important and sensitive departments like Home Appointment and Gopan by making him Deputy Chief Minister and Yogi was avoiding it. But when BJP’s organization general secretary BL Santosh and in-charge Radha Mohan Singh went to Lucknow and they increased the pressure by talking to the MLAs and ministers and discussions started to replace Yogi, whom Radha Mohan Singh had with Governor Anandiben Patel and Assembly Speaker Hriday Narayan Dixit. After getting more strength from him, Yogi directly contacted Sir Sanghchalak and explained his position to him.
According to a source very close to Yogi, the Chief Minister told him that for the last four-and-a-half years, my government has followed every directive of the Center. Even the list of party candidates for Rajya Sabha, Legislative Council elections has been prepared and sent by the central leadership without their advice and they have been accepting it. The state officials also kept getting instructions directly from the Center and they allowed that too. In the name of the organization, interference in government work and appointments continued. And now the blame for the failure is being put on his head. Yogi also told Bhagwat that even if the Home Secrets and Appointment portfolios are taken away from a Chief Minister, then the existence of that Chief Minister is equal. It is better that if the Sangh chief gives instructions to him, then he will give his resignation. He also said that only with the blessings of the Sangh chief, he is fulfilling his duty by becoming the Chief Minister.

According to the source, the Sangh chief took this matter of Yogi Adityanath very seriously. Anyway, the post of Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh was given to Yogi Adityanath not by the wish of the BJP leadership but by the wishes of the Sangh leadership. Because the Sangh is working on a far-reaching plan to develop Yogi as the future leader of BJP after Modi. It is said that after this, in a three-day meeting of all the Sangh’s projects and allied organizations in-charge and other top officials in Delhi, one day Uttar Pradesh was discussed in which the report of Sir Karyavahar Dattatreya Hosbole and BJP’s organization general secretary BL Santosh was considered. After that it was unanimous opinion of the Sangh that Yogi Adityanath would continue as the Chief Minister. But he will have to back down from his insistence that he will make Arvind Sharma the maximum minister of state. They should make Arvind Sharma a cabinet minister and as far as the cabinet reshuffle and expansion is concerned, the BJP leadership should take the chief minister into confidence and take a decision on it after talking to each other and not ignore the chief minister even in the matter of ministers’ portfolios. should go. In this way, the Sangh found a middle ground and advised both the central leadership and the Yogi to take a step back from their stand.
The central leadership carried out Operation Jitin Prasada only after Yogi got the protection from the Sangh. Through this, the BJP leadership gave a shock to the Congress on one hand and gave a message that BJP would make every effort to remove the displeasure of its core mass base class Brahmins in Uttar Pradesh and on the other hand Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and state BJP President Swatantradev Singh in the BJP entry of Jitin. was also not taken into confidence as there was an apprehension that Jitin Prasada, who had been continuously attacking the Yogi government for the past two-three years for neglecting, oppressing and killings of Brahmins, that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath might put a hindrance in the BJP entry. That is why no leader of the state BJP was on stage in Jitin’s entry program. According to sources, Yogi was uncomfortable with this, but seeing the urgency of the time, he did not react to it, but welcomed Jitin to the BJP by tweeting. After talking to the Home Minister and the BJP President, he has no hesitation in taking Jitin in his cabinet. After Yogi Adityanath’s meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP will start preparations for the next elections by giving the message of ‘everything is fine’.
