At 38, Akhilesh Yadav will be the youngest CM of Uttar Pradesh. The SP parliamentary board will meet on Saturday March 10 to formally decide and announce the CM of Uttar Pradesh. Even, Akhilesh Yadav added to the suspense today by evading questions on the chief ministership issue.
Ever since the election results were out on Tuesday, there has been speculation as to who would be the chief minister. A section of party leaders wanted Akhilesh as the new CM, crediting with the party’s change of fortunes with his spirited campaign before and during the elections.
“We don’t have anything to say today. The legislature party will meet tomorrow where the leader will be chosen. All MLAs and MPs will take part in the meeting,” Mulayam Singh Yadav said earlier in the day.
