On his 50th birthday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, saying the state has reached new heights of growth under his ‘able’ leadership. Mr Adityanath, a five-time Member of Parliament from Gorakhpur, has made rapid progress in politics after being appointed Uttar Pradesh chief minister by the BJP leadership in 2017.
The BJP secured a big win over its rivals in the 2022 assembly elections with him as the chief ministerial face, with his image as a strong administrator considered as a plus.
‘Birthday greetings to UP’s dynamic Chief Minister @myogiadityanath Ji. Under his able leadership, the state has scaled new heights of progress. He has ensured pro-people governance to the people of the state. Praying for his long and healthy life in service of the people,’ PM tweeted.
