Hours after taking oath as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath on Friday held an introductory meeting with his new ministers at Lok Bhavan in Lucknow.

A senior government official said that CM Adityanath is likely to meet his Cabinet members on Saturday.

"In this introductory meeting, the Chief Minister thanked the people of the State for reposing their faith in nationalism, safety, good governance and development," the Uttar Pradesh Government said in a statement.

He also said that serving the people is the most pious work, and discharging duties with commitment and loyalty provides satisfaction.
