Yogi Adityanath has showered kind words and thank-you gifts on each of about 115 functionaries of the BJP in UP for their contribution to the party's thumping win in the recent assembly election which led to his anointment as chief minister.
Thirty-five members, including senior functionaries such as deputy chief ministers Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma, and the party's general secretary (organisation) Sunil Bansal, have got a Samsung smartphone worth Rs 8,000 apiece and a saffron shawl as a token of appreciation from the CM. Eighty other middle and lower-level functionaries, including the party's state spokespersons who were a regular fixture in TV debates, have got a Titan watch worth about Rs 3,000 and a white shawl each from the CM.
"He personally felicitated each party functionary on Wednesday as soon as he stepped into the CM's official residence at 5, KD Marg, saying he was here only due to the hard work done by the party members in UP," a senior BJP functionary told ET.
