Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh, after being ruled by the Samajwadi Party for five years, has given the reigns of the state to the Bharatiya Janata Party, which would officially take the oath of abiding by the duties on March 17.

Though the Chief Ministerial face of the party has not been projected yet, the date has been decided from which a new leader would be guiding the state to the path of development.

The oath taking ceremony of the new CM and his council of ministers in Uttar Pradesh is scheduled for March 17 (Friday).

UPiites are expecting a fresh start with the BJP who has been elected to power after 14 years and the party, who got the throne after the 'Vanvaas', itself wants to present a strong and promising candidate for the post of the CM.

National President of the BJP Amit Shah had said in a press conference, after the results of the assembly polls, that the CM face would be announced a day before Holi (March 12).

It could be mentioned that the saffron brigade has won the 2017 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections with thumping majority. Bharatiya Janata Party and its allies sealed a historic win at 325 seats followed by the SP-Congress alliance on 54 seats.

The Mayawati led Bahujan Samaj Party faced a massive blow as despite being ‘national party’ it could only mange to secure 19 seats out of the 403 Assembly constituencies, which clearly means that they did not get support even from its traditional vote bank ‘Dalits’.
