New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath resumes the ‘Janata Darshan’ program at his official residence on Thursday May 6. The program had been closed for the past two months due to the code of conduct imposed because of the general elections.

In the ‘Janata Darshan’ program, the Chief Minister goes to the public and listens to their problems. As part of his ‘Janata Darshan’ programme, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will meet with the public every day from 9 am to 2 pm and listen to their problems. He will also immediately instruct officials for redressal, as per the information released by the CMO.

CM Yogi regularly met with residents from across the state during the Janta Darshan program held at his official residence. These interactions allowed citizens to present their issues and seek assistance from the Chief Minister. 

However, The restart of the program just two days after the Lok Sabha elections results shows the pressure on Yogi Adityanath as Bharatiya Janata Party had faced defeat in Uttar Pradesh where 80 constituencies play a major role in deciding the fate of any political party.

Looking at the previous results, in 2014 & 2019, BJP got the majority on the strength of Uttar Pradesh. This time, BJP could only secure 33 seats, in contrast to the 63 seats it won in the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. On the other hand, Samajwadi Party won 37 seats & Congress won 6 seats. 

The outcome in Uttar Pradesh is seen as a major blow for UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, as BJP has faced significant defeats in eastern UP, which is known as Adityanath’s stronghold. 

BJP unexpectedly lost in the Faizabad constituency too, where BJP was optimistic due to its connection to Ayodhya, where the Ram Temple was inaugurated by PM Modi prior to the Lok Sabha elections.

Yogi Adityanath may not want to lose the upcoming assembly elections, especially when rumors of him not retaining the seat of UP CM this time are circulating. Arvind Kejriwal has also recently criticized the BJP party for the same in a press conference after coming out of jail.
