Who is Brijesh Pathak, who became Deputy CM of UP within 6 years of joining BJP
Despite this, if speculation continued that he might be dropped, it was also due to reports that indicated that his relationship with the Chief Minister was not cordial. But Keshav Prasad Maurya was not only included in the cabinet but was also given the post of Deputy Chief Minister as before. However, this time instead of Dinesh Sharma, who was the second Deputy Chief Minister, was given to Brajesh Pathak of Brahmin society. Similarly, taking State BJP President Swatantra Dev Singh and Uttarakhand Governor Babyrani Maurya in the cabinet is also important. Swatantradev Singh is an influential leader of the Kurmi community, while Babyrani Maurya comes from the Jatav community.

However, in a vast and diverse state like Uttar Pradesh, there can be no cabinet which can claim to have satisfactory representation of every section and every sector. But the real test of all the claims related to representation in the right proportion lies in the functioning of the government. The basic challenge before the Yogi government is to make its second term better than before.
