Lucknow: Amid plenty of parleys one week after the thumping victory of BJP in elections, the Saffron party has finally handed the CM post to a hardcore Hindu nationalist : Lok Sabha MP Yogi Adityanath.

He was barely into the CM quest after the election results were out on 11th March. The prominent names for the CM face were Rajnath Singh, Manoj Sinha, Srikant Sharma, state chief Keshav Prasad Maurya and even BJP chief Amit Shah himself!
