Field CM Yogi from Mathura, BJP MP urges high command

LUCKNOW: BJP Rajya Sabha member Harnath Singh Yadav on Monday pitched for fielding Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath as party candidate from Mathura in the forthcoming assembly elections. The Mathura seat is currently represented by UP energy minister Srikant Sharma.
In a letter to party president J P Nadda, Yadav claimed that “Lord Krishna inspired him to write this letter”.
Yadav also posted the letter on Twitter, tagging PM Narendra Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah.
“Although voters of each assembly seat want Yogi ji to contest from their constituency, people of Braj region have a special desire that the CM should contest from Mathura, the land of Lord Krishna,” said Yadav, who hails from Mainpuri and was once considered close to SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav. He joined BJP in 2014 and was made Rajya Sabha MP in 2018.
The letter has surfaced when the demand for CM Yogi contesting the state elections is growing shriller. Yogi, too, has expressed his willingness in contesting from any seat decided by the high command.
Speculations have been rife about Yogi being fielded from Gorakhpur or Ayodhya, the Hindutva nerve centre. SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, too, has been dropping broad hints of contesting the election if Yogi also joins the fray.
The development comes amid growing voices within BJP vis-a-vis development of Mathura. CM Yogi recently said that after construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya and renovation of Kashi Vishwanath temple premises, it is the turn of ‘Mathura’s development’.
Earlier, deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya had also trained the spotlight on Mathura through his December 2 tweet, saying: “Ayodhya, Kashi bhavya mandir nirmaan jaari hai, Mathura ki taiyari hai….”
