Is he the next Prime Minister in the making?
He is young and dynamic. He is a fierce orator and is often perceived as unconventional. Most importantly, he is an incredibly popular politician in India.
Is Yogi Adityanath India’s next Prime Minister in the making? His unprecedented rise in the Bharatiya Janata Party and his over-the-top campaigns and displays of his photograph along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s on billboards, among many other moves, seem to suggest his political ambition.
Tracing his early life, entry into electoral politics and elevation to the position of the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, India’s most populous state, this book evaluates many untold stories of Yogi Adityanath.
Sifting through information on the Chief Minister’s out-of-the-box administrative skills; his claims on law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh; and handling of the COVID-19 crisis in the first and the second waves of the pandemic, the authors present to us what is probably the first critical biography of Yogi Adityanath.
