Me coming between Rahul and Akhilesh was the reason for their loss in UP - CM Aditya Nath Yogi

NEW DELHI: In his first speech in Lok Sabha after taking charge as UP chief minister, Aditya Nath Yogi reinstated his promise of an unbiased government and one which will make state crime-free.

On a one day visit to the capital on Tuesday, the MP from Gorakhpur said that he is working and focused on PM Narendra Modi vision of "sabka saath, sabka vikas".

UP ke ladke-Rahul and Akhilesh did not realise that there is one more UP ka Ladka. They misjudged Yogi Adityanath who took away UP from them.

Yogi used humour and wit to make the point that he and BJP had disrupted Samajwadi-Congress hopes when he said he was just a year younger to Rahul Gandhi and a year older to Akhilesh Yadav. "I came in between this partnership... I think this could be a big reason for your failure (in UP)," he said amid laughter in the House.

The new CM seemed keen to respond to allegations that he was a divisive leader with rough and ready ways, saying that though UP was often equated with lawlessness, his constituency was different. "I can say we never let a single businessman give goonda tax, no businessman was kidnapped, didn't let anyone indulge in lawlessness, there have been 403 riots in UP but none in east UP," he said.

The House heard Yogi in near silence, the first time this might have happened as his comments almost unfailingly rile the opposition. Dressed in his trademark saffron clothes, Adityanath said the new government would look to speedily utilize unspent central funds earmarked for the state.

"Bahut kuch band hone jaa raha hai (so many things are going to be shut)," Yogi said, hinting at the imminent shutting of illegal abattoirs as well as what he has called preferential system of appointments and political favours. Shutting down mechanised abattoirs was a much repeated poll promise of BJP leaders including president Amit Shah.

"Bhrashtachar-mukt, goondagardi-mukt rajya hoga (state will be free of corruption and lawlessness)," Yogi said, adding, "Migrations from the state will come to an end as there will be jobs."
