Yogi gets cracking, trains guns on graft

BJP’s hardline Hindutva poster boy and five-time MP, Yogi Adityanath was on Sunday sworn-in as the 21st chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, heading a 47-member council of ministers that includes two deputy CMs.

A surprise inclusion was cricketer-turned-politician Mohsin Raza,  who was sworn in as a minister of state becoming the lone Muslim face in  the state government. BJP had not fielded any Muslim candidate in the  Assembly polls. 
Soon after assuming office, 44-year-old Adityanath got cracking and  directed all his ministers to give details of their income, movable and  immovable assets within 15 days to send a strong message that corruption  will not be tolerated. 
Adityanath, who has been attacked for his inflammatory remarks  against Muslims in the past, asserted that his government “will work for  all sections of the society without any discrimination. We will ensure  balanced development of UP”.
