Yogi gives aides power to run mutt

After his anointment as the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath has withdrawn from the routine affairs of the Gorakhnath Mutt. A few of his key aides are now looking after the affairs of the temple.

“The chief minister does not have the time to look after the daily affairs of the mutt... He will, however, be issuing guidelines and monitoring the work,” said an official of the mutt. “Earlier, it was maharaj ji (Adityanath) who used to perform all the important functions,” the official said. But now others have been deputed to perform various duties at the mutt, sources said.

D P Tiwari, one of Adityanath’s trusted aides, will be handling matters relating to complaints from the public and taking up their issues with the government officials concerned. He will act as a link between the government and the masses, sources said.

Sources said the task of performing rituals and taking care of the seers and sages who visit the mutt and stay there has been handed to another aide, Kamalnath.
