BJP's Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy today said Uttar Pradesh would "shine" under the leadership of newly-elected Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
As he entered the House amid chants of "Jai Sri Ram", there was a brief interruption in the speech by TDP member Rammohan Naidu, who stopped to extend greetings to the new UP Chief Minister.
Superintendent of Police, Hathras, Dilip Kumar Srivastava, said, "Unidentified persons set ablaze three shops selling fish and meat".
During his visit to the annexe building, where the chief minister's office is located, he was annoyed to see stains of paan and paan masala all over and directed the staff not to chew tobacco or consume masala while on duty.
Forecast: An Actually Not-So-Surprising April Snowstorm Comes Friday, Ends Saturday
The precipitation - rain, snow, sleet or a mixture - is expected to taper off around sunrise and exit the region by around 9 a.m. A potent spring storm will bring accumulating snow to parts of the Intermountain West, including Denver, into Saturday night .
Adityanath, who spoke on the Bill after Naidu, laid thrust on allaying apprehensions over his taking over in UP.
"UP will be the state which our honourable Prime Minister has dreamt of, a corruption-free state, a state free of anarchy".
After being assigned the charge of India's most politically-crucial state, Adityanath assured that Uttar Pradesh would soon be considered as the supreme state in the country. "We will present a development model which will prevent distress migration of youths for jobs", he said.
A stickler for cleanliness, the saffron-robed 44-year-old chief minister had administered a sanitation pledge to officials a day after he took over as the UP CM and asked them to ensure that the pledge is effectively implemented on the lines of Swachh Bharat Mission of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "You are welcome to UP", he said.
