On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his cabinet colleagues. This will be the Prime Minister’s first meeting with all Uttar Pradesh ministers since the new government took office earlier this year.
Following his Nepal tour, the Prime Minister will arrive in Lucknow on May 16 and meet with UP government ministers at the chief minister’s residence.
PM Modi is expected to discuss the state government’s priorities and provide advice on good governance.
After returning from Nepal, the Prime Minister will pray at the Mahanirvana Stupa in Kushinagar at 4:40 p.m.
Yogi Adityanath was sworn in as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister for the second time on March 25, breaking a 37-year record, in a grand ceremony at a packed Lucknow stadium attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, top BJP leaders, and Bollywood stars.
Yogi Adityanath’s cabinet is made up of 52 ministers.
The BJP retained power in Uttar Pradesh by winning 255 out of 403 constituencies in the January assembly elections, securing a 41.29 percent vote share.
Yogi Adityanath, who led his party to a landslide victory, is the state’s first Chief Minister in 37 years to return to power after serving a full term.
