Meet Yogi’s sister who runs a small tea shop in Uttarakhand

Dehradun: Uttar Pradesh chief minister-designate Yogi Adityanath’s sister Shashi Singh on Wednesday requested her brother to meet his mother, who resides in Uttarakhand.

Born in Panchur village of Uttarakhand’s Pauri Garhwal, Adityanath had left his home at the age of 18 to become a monk in Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur. When Yogi left home, he did not even inform that he was going to become a monk, his sister said in an exclusive conversation with Times Now.

Shashi runs a small tea shop near her village in Uttarakhand. When asked about people’s reaction on when they see her running a shop while her brother runs the state, Shahi said her family did not like parivarvaad (dynastic politics). She said in other parties, all family members join politics but “this is not in our family…then it becomes parivarvaad…we don’t want it and he (Yogi) also says: (khud kamao aur khao).

The BJP under the leadership of Yogi Adityanath swept Uttar Pradesh by winning 274 of 403 seats with over 41% vote share. Yogi made the history by becoming the first to return as chief minister for the second consecutive term after completing five full years as CM.

Asked about her message to her brother Yogi Adityanath, Shashi said she will request him to meet mother once. Yogi will take oath as chief minister on March 25.

Shashi recalled an incident when Yogi then Ajay Singh told his father to not only take care of his family, but also think of others. To which his father said that he only earned Rs 85 only, and it wasn’t possible for him to think of others. Then, Shashi added, father said: “Will see what you will do…now he (Yogi) has shown it.”

Five-time MP, Yogi Adityanath was a surprise pick by the BJP for the top post in 2017.
