Yogi Adityanath swearing-in ceremony: Keshav Prasad Maurya, Brajesh Pathak on Friday took oath as deputy Chief Ministers in Yogi Adityanath Cabinet. 

Keshav Prasad Maurya was the biggest casualty in UP assembly polls who lost Sirathu to his Samajwadi Party rival, Pallavi Patel, by a margin of 7,337 votes.

Maurya began his political career with social-religious groups like Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), to which he has been associated from a very young age. Maurya played an instrumental role during the cow-protection and Ram Janmabhoomi movements. He also led the group of Kar Sewak for the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya in 1990.

In what could be seen as a promotion for Pathak was Law Minister in Yogi Adityanath's first government. A top Brahmin leader, a former Lok Sabha MP, he switched to the BJP from Mayawati's BSP in 2017.

The announcement of Maurya and Pathak ended over two weeks of suspense. According to reports, a flurry of meetings between the top leadership of the BJP in Delhi and Adityanath were held before the announcement.
