"I am confident that the state will march on the path of development", he said.

The BJP sources said Modi and Shah had finalised the name of Union minister Manoj Sinha, considered an able administrator.

BJP has made Keshav Prasad Maurya, an MBC, a deputy CM, while Yogi Adityanath, a Thakur, has been made CM, she added.

"(By) Making a person of such criminal background the Chief Minister of our largest state, the message BJP (wants to) send to the nation is that they will continue to try to capture power by resorting to communal riots.

The choice of the fiery hindutva mascot as chief minister had led to some apprehensions but Adityanath has emphasised that he would follow Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "sabka saath, sabka vikas" slogan.

The meeting of the BJP's elected lawmakers "lasted for about 90 minutes, in a very disciplined and festive manner", Gupta said, adding that media reports about the central observers' flip flops on Adityanath's elevation were baseless.

Swapan Dasgupta, a right-leaning commentator, said Adityanath was associated with "a certain brand of militant Hindu assertion" but that he was also "one of the most charismatic and captivating politicians in Uttar Pradesh".

Addressing his first press conference as the chief minister, Adityanath said: "Our government is fully committed to fulfill the promises that were made (before elections)".

Also, former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav were also present at the event.

Taking the charge on his shoulders, Adityanath has also asked the ministers to give details of their income, movable and immovable property within fifteen days to Chief Minister Secretary & organisation.
