Adityanath, who has been an MP in Lok Sabha for five straight terms, had earlier made a special request to get his name added to the list of speakers.

Even his arrival in the Lok Sabha was a display of power as he arrived in the middle of a debate and was greeted to chants of “Jai Sri Ram” and “Bharat Mata ki Jai”, with BJP leaders loudly thumping their desks.

 

In his final speech, while he was all praises for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he didn’t let the opportunity slip and made sure he took a dig at Rahul Gandhi, who was not present in the house.

“I am a year younger than Rahul Gandhi and a year older than Akhilesh Yadav. I came between their jodi (alliance). That is why they failed in UP.”

His quip though didn’t go down smoothly Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, who soon interjected with a rebuttal,

“I congratulate you for coming to power, I urge you to maintain the propriety of your chair.”

But that was just the beginning, and Adityanath was soon back to praising PM Modi and his development work.

He even walked the memory lane and said,

“When I came to this house for the first time, I was 26 and skinny,”

Though his comment drew laughter from the audience, there was a mild interjection from Speaker Sumitra Mahajan,

“You are not that fat even now…”

His speech though was largely thanksgiving to the PM, and a pledge to follow his model of development.

” PM Modi has emerged as an icon and set an example in the world…He remained steadfast on his commitment to run a government for the poor, for the farmers, without any discrimination…I promise a corruption-free, incident-free UP… You are all welcome to UP.”

Earlier in the day, Yogi Adityanath had met PM Modi, BJP Chief Amit Shah, and President Pranab Mukherjee to tender his resignation from the Lok Sabha.
