New Delhi [India], Apr. 2 (ANI): The first official meeting of the newly-appointed Cabinet of Uttar Pradesh will be held on April 4 two weeks after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Yogi Adityanath took oath as the Chief Minister.
“The Cabinet meeting will be held on April 4,” State’s Health Minister Siddharth Nath Singh confirmed to ANI, adding the agenda of the meeting has not been finalized yet.
It is expected that the issue of the farmers’ loan waiver will be discussed in the meeting, as promised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in the run up to the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.
The BJP bagged 312 seats, and its allies 13, taking the alliance’s tally to 325 in the 403-member Assembly, thereby giving a major setback to the Samajwadi Party which joined hands with the Congress this time.
Adityanath, a five-time Lok Sabha MP from Gorakhpur, was unanimously elected as the new Chief Minister of the state. (ANI)
