Bric-a-Brac : Problems for Yogi

governor withholds files

yogi-aditya-nath-up-chief-ministerCHIEF Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Aditya Nath’s troubles seem to be never ending. He is now embroiled in a tussle with Uttar Pradesh governor Ram Naik. Their relations are souring fast. Sources close to Yogi have been critical of Naik impeding Yogi’s work. They say Naik has withheld files pertaining to several important decisions taken by Yogi. These include the appointment of chairpersons of some important public sector undertakings. Naik is not a run-of-the mill kind of governor. When he was Petroleum Minister in Vajpayee’s regime, he put his foot down and did not clear an important file of an influential industrialist of Mumbai and instead preferred a defeat in the Lok Sabha by film actor Govinda. It is also reported in the local media that a section of civil servants isn’t supporting Yogi. The reasons behind this aloofness are not known. Yogi is also troubled by the change in style of Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, known for his proximity with party chief Amit Shah. Yogi is aware of all these changes but does not seem to be aware of how to deal with them. gfiles end logo
