CM Yogi Adityanath breaks 16-year-old myth, spends night at Agra circuit house
Agra: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has broken a 16-year-old myth by spending a night at the Agra Circuit House on Monday last.
CM Yogi stayed at suite number 1 at the circuit house and when he was asked about the jinx, he smiled and scoffed at it. He said that he did not believe in myths.
This is a place which was not chosen by any state Chief Minister for the last 16 years. The last Chief Minister to have stayed in the Agra Circuit House, a government accommodation, was Rajnath Singh who was here 16 years back.
Incidentally, he lost his chair after the visit and none of his successors have dared to stay there since.
Neither Mulayam Singh Yadav, nor Mayawati and not even Akhilesh Yadav mustered the courage to stay at the circuit house for fear of losing power.
Whenever, the former Chief Ministers visit the 'Taj City' they stayed at plush five-star properties.

Prime minister Narendra Modi also lauded the chief minister last month for not believing in myths.
It may be mentioned that the monk-turned-politician also broke a 29-year-old myth by visiting Noida last year.
