Yogi files nomination papers for UP Council

Yogi files nomination papers for UP Council”

On the inaugural day of the week-long Ramkatha (narration of the Ramayan by scholars) event here at Gorakhnath temple on Sunday, chief minister Yogi Adityanath said, "Lord Ram was a source of inspiration for all while Ayodhya, birthplace of the Hindu deity, is a motherland for all countrymen".

Deputy chief ministers Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma are both crorepatis, according to the affidavits they submitted with their nomination papers for the Legislative Council by-elections on Tuesday.Both own weapons too.

There are five vacancies in the Upper House of the state and with no other candidate in the fray, they are all set to be elected unopposed. The fifth fell vacant when Jaiveer Singh resigned from the BSP and joined the BJP.

The term of Nawab and Singh was to end in 2022 and that of Agarwal and Bajpai in 2021. The last date of withdrawal of candidature is September 8. The poll process will be completed before September 18, the poll panel has said.

SP supremo Akhilesh Yadav had dared Adityanath and Maurya to contest by-polls to the assembly instead of taking the council route.

Adityanath, who took over as the CM on March 19, has to become a legislator within the stipulated six months of assuming office.

Maurya is a Lok Sabha member from Phoolpur while Sharma was the Lucknow Mayor before he was sworn-in as Adityanath's deputy.

According to the affidavit, the value of his assets at present is Rs 95,98,053.41 as compared to Rs 72,17,674.14 in 2014, when he had contested the Lok Sabha elections, showing an increase by Rs 23.80 lakh.
