Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday said Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s entry into active politics would not have any impact on the outcome of the upcoming Lok Sabha polls as “zero plus zero results in zero”.

Yogi also said "Priyanka had played a leading role during the 2014 General Elections and the 2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, but the Congress lost both. The fate will be the same It will not have any impact on BJP.”

Speaking to media in Noida he said, “Zero plus zero results in zero. This would not make any impact on the poll outcome. With her appointment, the Congress has only extended its culture of the political dynasty.”

Yesterday, during the inauguration ceremony of Aqua line, the Chief Minister also took a dig at Akhilesh and Mayawati, he said, “Earlier there was a jinx associated with Noida and Greater Noida. It was said that any chief minister who visits this region loses his/her chair. Hence this region remained ignored.”

“When I became the chief minister, I was asked if I would visit the twin-cities in western UP, I said why not! Noida and Greater Noida are also part of UP," he added.

He further said, "We are not working for the chair or power, we are working for the people. I have visited this region multiple times since March 2017 and would continue to do so in future,” Adityanath said."
