BJP UP President Keshav Prasad Maurya Hospitalised

UP CM contender BJP UP Keshav Maurya admitted to ICU

Uttar Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party president Keshav Prasad Maurya, now the deputy CM of UP had also sold tea like Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his father's tea stall before joining the RSS.

Maurya was considered to be one of the top contenders for the chief ministership after the BJP secured a landslide victory in the state.

Recently, during a debate in the Lower House, members from several parties, after taking objection to the farm loan waiver promised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during campaigning in UP, had demanded that the government waive loans of farmers across the country to bring down the number of suicides. State BJP chief Maurya was on Friday discharged from a Delhi hospital after a day " s hospitalisation due to complaint of uneasiness. Which is why the government chose to appoint two deputy chief ministers in the state. "The oath-taking ceremony will be on March 19 and all national leaders of the party will attend the ceremony", he told reporters. "The announcement is likely to be made after the (newly-elected) BJP MLAs meet in Lucknow", said an informed source to a news agency. In 2012, BJP expelled a series of party leaders who chose to attack Maurya on public platforms. The BJP has taken this decision after thorough deliberation. The caste calculus, meticulously stitched by BJP chief Amit shah and his team, which helped the BJP win, is a major consideration for deciding on the next Uttar Pradesh chief minister. In 2014 Lok Sabha polls, he won from Phulpur in Allahabad.Maurya, who comes from a humble background, is said to have sold tea and newspapers when he was a child.
