Here we present a few interesting and unknown facts about the UP CM. Are you ready to find out how well you know Yogi Adityanath?

 

Long history with politics and religion

His tryst with politics isn’t a recent one. In fact, it began way back in 1996 when he was in-charge of managing the election campaign for Mahant Avaidyanath. However, Avaidyanath retired from active politics in 1998 and in doing so, he not only declared Yogi as his heir but also as a nominee for the next Lok Sabha polls.

Torchbearer of religion

Besides being a long-standing BJP MP from Gorakhpur, he is also the head priest of the Gorakhnath temple. He has had a winning streak with the Gorakhpur seat in UP since 1998. In fact, when he won around the first time, he was merely 26 years of age and the youngest MP in the 12th Lok Sabha.

Strong educational background



Unlike what most people seem to believe, Yogi Adityanath is very well-educated. In fact, he has an honours degree in Mathematics from H. N. B. Garhwal University.

 

Spearhead of social activism

In 2005, he led a purification drive for Christians which was aimed at converting and diverting their beliefs to Hinduism. Apart from this, he also formed the anti-Romeo squads which go out on rounds to identify and arrest eve teasers and miscreants who trouble school and college girls. In his own words, by doing so, he wishes to restore the pride of women.

 

Gauseva

Like all other Hindu priests, Yogi Aditynath too is a believer in the holiness of a cow. He even runs a big gaushala. Here he has Muslim workers who harmoniously coexist in the habitat alongside Hindu workers.

Lifestyle

He leads a modest life, where his day starts off at 3 am everyday, beginning with prayers. As for his food, he keeps it very simple. He eats a hearty and healthy breakfast as a good start to the day and skips lunch. However, his dinner sometimes only consists of an apple.
