Yogi’s Team Uttar Pradesh: Aparna Yadav, Pankaj Singh likely to get ministerial berths in new cabinet

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Uttar Pradesh will see a host of new and young faces this time. After the party’s bumper win in the polls, hectic parleys are underway in Delhi to finalise the names to be included in the Cabinet. Yogi Adityanath on Sunday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Ministers Rajnath Singh and Amit Shah and BJP’s national president JP Nadda.

Sources told India TV that the party leadership is likely to change as many as one and half a dozen ministers. The frontrunners for ministerial berths in the new cabinet are Aparna Yadav, Pankaj Singh, Shalabh Mani Tripathi, Aseem Arun, Rajeshwar Singh and Dayashankar Singh.

Aparna Yadav, the daughter-in-law of Mulayam Singh Yadav, joined the Bharatiya Janata Party just ahead of the Assembly polls. She didn’t contest the polls. She will likely be one of the party’s candidates for the upcoming elections to the Legislative Council.

Pankaj Singh (43), the party’s MLA from Noida, defeated SP’s Sunil Choudhary by a huge margin of 1,81,513 votes. Shalabh Mani Tripathi, who served as the media advisor to Adityanath in the first term, won elections from the Deoria seat by a margin of 40,655. Asim Arun, an IPS officer who applied for a voluntary retirement scheme ahead of the polls, won polls on a BJP ticket from Kannauj. He defeated SP’s Anil Kumar Doharey by a margin of 6,090 votes.
