At 38, Akhilesh is the new hope for UP, takes oath as Chief Minister
Akhilesh Yadav became the 33rd chief minister of Uttar Pradesh today. Seen as the young face of Samajwadi Party, Akhilesh has received acclamation from all party workers for the victory in the UP polls.

SAMAJWADI PARTY (SP) leader and the Uttar Pradesh state president, Akhilesh Yadav, was sworn in as the youngest chief minister of the state on Thursday. Governor B L Joshi administered the oath at a grand function, which was held at the famous La Martiniere college ground in Lucknow and was well attended by a large number of VIP guests who converged at the venue to witness the coronation ceremony of the Samajwadi Party’s ‘Yuvraj’ Akhilesh.

It was a proud moment for the father Mulayam who blessed his son Akhilesh and wished him all success in his latest endeavour as the chief minister of the one of the most populous and politically important states.

At 38, the junior Yadav becomes the 33rd chief minister to head Uttar Pradesh. There will be 19 cabinet ministers in the Akhilesh Raj besides 29 ministers of state who were also administered the oath on the occasion.

The names of 19 cabinet ministers who were inducted by Akhilesh in his government include Azam Khan, Shivpal Singh Yadav, Ahmad Hasan, Waqar Ahmad Shah, Raja Mahendra Aridaman Singh, Ambika Chaudhary, Anand Singh, Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiyya, Balram Yadav, Om Prakash Singh, Awadhsh Prasad, Parasnath Yadav, Ram Govind Chaudhary, Durga Prasad Yadav, Brahma Shanker Tripathi, Kameshwar Upadhyaya, Raja Ram Pandey, Raj Kishore Singh and Shiv Kumar Beria.

Soon after the newly appointed chief minister left the venue, Samajwadi Party workers created a ruckus near the stage perhaps in over enthusiasm. There were scenes of pushing and jostling and security personnel present on the spot had a tough time in controlling the workers.
