New Delhi: Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath is set to contest next month’s Assembly polls from the Gorakhpur (Urban) seat on the BJP ticket, the party said on Saturday afternoon after releasing its candidates’ first list.

Yogi’s deputy, Keshav Prasad Maurya, will contest from Prayagraj’s Sirathu.

“The decision has been made after much deliberation… the final decision (was taken) by the top leadership of the party,” Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan was quoted as saying reporters by news agency ANI.

“Yogiji said ‘I will contest from any seat party asks me to’… This was the party’s decision,” Pradhan said while dismissing speculation that Yogi had been adamant on contesting from Gorakhpur. According to sources, he was inclined to fight from Gorakhpur instead of starting over in a new constituency.

“I am thankful to PM Modi, BJP chief JP Nadda, (and the) Central Parliamentary Committee for fielding me from Gorakhpur. BJP works on the model of ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’… BJP will form the government with full majority,” Adityanath was quoted as saying by the agency.
