Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has made it clear that he will contest the next Assembly elections. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Meanwhile, BJP MP Harnath Singh Yadav has written a letter to party president J Prakash Nada urging Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to contest from Mathura Assembly seat.
Harnath Singh, a resident of Mathura, wrote a letter to BJP president JP Nanda, saying, “The chief minister himself has announced that he will contest from wherever the party wants.” Therefore, I sincerely request you that the people of Burj area have a special wish that Yogi Ji should contest elections from Lord Krishna’s city Mathura.
BJP MP Harnath Singh Yadav claimed that he had been persuaded by Shri Krishna to write the letter. At the same time, he wrote, “We sincerely request you to consider the candidature of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath from Shri Krishna’s Ngi, keeping in view the sentiments of the people of Burj area.”
It should be noted that Yogi Adityanath is currently a member of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council. He had recently clarified in a formal conversation with journalists that “there is no impediment to my contesting the elections, but the party leadership will decide where I will contest the elections”. When the Chief Minister was asked whether he would contest from Ayodhya or from Mathura or Gorakhpur, he said, “I will contest from wherever the party says.”
