Yogi Adityanath welcomes Aparna Yadav to BJP family by posting message on Koo

Lucknow/UNI: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya took to India’s only multilingual micro-blogging platform ‘Koo’ to welcome Aparna Yadav , who joined the BJP in New Delhi Wednesday.

In his one liner, Yogi Adityanath posted in Hindi ," Aparna jee ka BJP pariwar me swagat hai" and posted a group photo with BJP leaders after her joining, a statement from Koo here said.

He also welcomed her by posting his comment and image on Twitter.

Keshav Maurya too welcomed Aparna in the party.

The daughter-in-law of former Samajwadi Party Mulayam Singh Yadav on Wednesday joined the BJP ahead of the high-stake Uttar Pradesh elections.

Aparna Yadav is the wife of Prateek Yadav, son of Mulayam's second wife Sadhana Gupta. Aparna and Prateek got married in 2011.

Even when she was in the SP, a political rival of the BJP, her rhetoric was unmistakably ‘saffron’. She had publicly supported the abrogation of Article 370 and National Register of Citizens (NRC), which was in direct contrast to the stand taken by her then party.

She also donated Rs 11 lakh for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya and was very vocal in her admiration for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Her exit is seen as a big jolt to the SP and reveals fissures within the Yadav family.
