Yogi Adityanath: UP CM Yogi to take oath in his real name... PIL dismissed, 1 lakh fine on filer
Prayagraj: The Allahabad High Court on Monday dismissed a PIL seeking a direction to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to take oath as the Chief Minister again in his real name. It was argued in the petition that many names of the Chief Minister like Adityanath, Yogi Adityanath etc. are being used.

A bench of Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Piyush Agrawal dismissed this petition of a person named Namah from Delhi. The court also imposed a fine of Rs 1 lakh on the petitioner. The petitioner had contended that different names of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath are being used on various platforms including digital platforms, which is creating confusion among the people. Therefore, the State Government should be directed to use only one name of the Chief Minister on digital and non-digital platforms.

Additional Advocate General Manish Goel, appearing for the state government, objected to the petition, contending that the petition is not maintainable as the Chief Minister has been made a party in a personal capacity and a PIL cannot be filed against a person. He said that the petitioner has not filed this petition for the benefit of the public, but has filed it only for publicity. Counsel for the petitioner argued that the petitioner has not filed this petition with any ulterior motive and it has been filed for the benefit of the people.
