Gorakhpur: A lot of tongue lashing has been taking place about Yogi Adityanath, the new Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, dubbing him as a stern ‘Hindutva’ hardliner. On the contrary, many people are oblivious of the soft aspect of his personality that he is an ardent animal lover.
Number of 'homeless' animals find refuge in his sprawling over 50-acres Gorakhnath temple premises headed by him as 'Mahant' of Gorakshpeeth. He feeds the cows every morning is already a known fact but very few know that Yogi has love and affection of other animals as well.
His love for cow and cattle leave those around him in astonishment. He is believed to possess an image of a daily cow feeder and giving food to them during his day to day chores. Animals like dogs, monkeys tend to respond his love with almost equal intensity as they come running towards him whenever they spot him.
