On social media, several people reacted as if something earth-shaking had happened and as if it was unexpected.
Why? Didn't you see it coming? Ahmed bhai had already sensed it and was supporting Yogi Adityanath even when the election campaign hadn't begun at all.
On the banner for 'Eid Milan', the slogan was 'UP Dol raha hai, Yogi Yogi bol raha hai'....'
Call him opportunistic or whatever, but there were guys who knew Yogi's time was coming.
And you call Muslims monolithic!
"No BJP, Yogi first. We prefer Yogi", that was the slogan too in Gorakhpur and surrounding region.
So when the 'Hindu-wadi' leader had so much support even among Muslims, just imagine the support among Hindus!!!
We have seen the rule of GB Pant, Sampoornanand, the most hated UP CM Vir Bahadur Singh and Kalyan Singh.
Now, we will see Yogi Adityanath leading India's most populous state, too.
