Yogi Adityanath is the talk of the town and interestingly he is the new member in the bachelor's club of chief ministers. The 44-year-old five-time MP joins the likes of Chief Minister of Haryana M L Khattar, among others in the bachelor's club.
The others in the list are M L Khattar, 62 ,(Haryana), Sarbananda Sonowal, 54, (Assam) Naveen Patnaik, 70 (Odisha). Incidentally, Yogi is also the first male bachelor CM of Uttar Pradesh. Mayawati, who was chief minister too is unmarried.
In today's list, barring the West Bengal chief minister, Mamata Banerjee and Patnaik from Odisha, the rest of the bachelor CMs are all from the BJP.
Patnaik has often told his voters that he remained single to serve the people. He has drawn comparisons to the Congress and said that he remaining single only meant that he would serve the people and there is no danger of a family rule in Odisha.
