The potato crop this year had been harvested before the Yogi government came to power, but the minister made his point.

Yogi, the god of potatoes

The BJP is abuzz with rumours of how a certain party leader is trying hard to accommodate his spouse at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Once a favourite of Yogi, Mr Agarwal allegedly rubbed him the wrong way over a trivial issue and invited the chief minister’s wrath.

A stylish neta & caring Yogi

However, Yogi’s gesture of visiting the home of the ailing MLA — ignoring the bitterness in their relationship — has left everyone surprised.

The state information department, that is supposed to act as a bridge between the government and the media, has also adopted a dictatorial posture.

Shut the door

Humility and humbleness are the prerequisites for a politician to be accepted by people.

Since the message from the chief minister has gone down loud and clear, officers and ministers have started shutting their doors on journalists.

Shut the door

Yogi seems to be following the footsteps of Mayawati, who followed a similar pattern as chief minister.
