After taking oath as the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister on 26 March 2017, Yogi Adityanath today resigned from his Gorakhpur parliamentary constituency as a member of parliament. He selected as a MP from the same seat of Uttar Pradesh for five consecutive terms since 1998. He quit the seat after voting in the vice-presidential poll earlier in the day.
Adityanath is likely to enter the state assembly as a member of the legislative council.Three Samajwadi Party and a Bahujan Samaj Party member from the upper house have already quit and it is expected that these three seats will fill by Adityanath along with his two deputies, Dinesh Sharma and Keshav Prasad Maurya instead of a direct election.
There is however no word on when Maurya, who represents the Phoolpur constituency in the Lok Sabha, would quit. Speculation is rife that he may be inducted in the Narendra Modi government.
