Yogi Adityanath will spend tonight in his village and attend the hair tonsure ceremony of his nephew tomorrow.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath met his mother Savitri Devi today at his ancestral village in Uttarakhand’s Panchur and touched her feet, seeking her blessings. The chief minister also gifted a shawl to his mother, who was visibly emotional to meet her son.

The chief minister could not go home when his father died during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic in April 2020. “I had the ardent wish to get a glimpse of him at the final moment. However, following a sense of duty towards the state’s 23 crore people during the COVID-19 pandemic, I could not do so,” the chief minister had said in a statement.

Yogi Adityanath will spend tonight in his village with his family and attend the hair tonsure ceremony of his nephew tomorrow. This is reportedly the chief minister’s first visit to the state in 28 years when he came to just attend a family function.

Born in Pauri’s Panchur village, Yogi Adityanath went to school in Chamkotkhal, where he studied from Class 1 to Class 9. Chamkotkhal is close to Yamkeshwar, where the Uttar Pradesh chief minister unveiled a statue of his spiritual guru Mahant Avaidyanath at a college on Tuesday. After the programme, he left for Panchur

On Thursday, the chief minister will be in Haridwar, where he will inaugurate several projects. He is also expected to attend a few programmes before leaving for Lucknow in the evening. (india today)
