Yogi Adityanath trashes superstition, gets pat from Modi


Noida, December 25, 2017: Prime Minister Narnedra Modi on Monday hailed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for ignoring superstition associated with Noida and visiting the city.

The Chief Minister had shunned advice of many for not visiting Noida, as many of his predecessors had apparently lost their chair after visiting Noida.

The Chief Minister visited Noida to receive Prime Minister Narendra Modi for inauguration of the Noida-Kalkaji Metro line.

“I credited him (Yogi Adityanath) with ending the superstition associated with Noida, by coming to this city. If anybody thinks that not going to a place will prolong their CM tenure and visiting a place will curtail it, such a person does not deserve to be a Chief Minister,” the Prime Minister asserted.

Adityanath’s immediate predecessor Akhilesh Yadav never visited Noida in his five year tenure. He used to inaugurate development projects by remote control from his official Kalidas Marg residence in Lucknow, the State capital.

Barring Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati who visited Noida four times so far and incidentally lost power too, no Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh has visited Noida in 29 years.

In 1988, Chief Minister Veer Bahadur Singh visited Noida and was ousted of power soon after. In 1989, his successor Narayan Dutt Tiwari of the Congress, Mulayam Singh Yadav in 1995, Kalyan Singh in 1999 and Mayawati in 2012 also lost power too after visiting Noida.
