In a sulk
The ambitious Hindutva leader, who until was thinking to have himself projected as the BJP’s chief ministerial candidate in UP, has been thinking of being a CM face for UP from quite some time. He failed to get any exposure in BJP top leadership and due to that he didn’t get any role in the state, he was also unable to secure a ministerial berth for himself in Modi’s cabinet.
This guy name did not even figure in the BJP’s 27-member election committee for UP which was formed and announced about 10 days ago by party’s state president Keshav Prasad Maurya. Significantly, the committee includes Ramapatiram Tripathi and Shiv Pratap Shukla, the two Brahmin leaders from Gorakhpur who are considered potential threats to Adityanath’s influence in the region.
People close to Adityanath claim that the incident will hurt the BJP. They say that the Gorakhpur MP and his Hindu Yuva Vahini wield so much influence in eastern UP that they could play spoiler for the BJP in a several seats in the region – if not placated in time.
