New Delhi, Mar 13 (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister designate Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday vowed to meet the expectations of his voters by firmly promoting happiness in the state.
"We have won the elections and there's a tradition to meet, so we have met. Our preference will always be given to Uttar Pradesh as people have voted us into power. Therefore, our preference is to promote happiness in Uttar Pradesh," said Akhilesh after meeting the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) leaders here.
Meanwhile, CPI-M General Secretary Prakash Karat after the meeting spoke on the Samajwadi Party's victory in India's fifth largest and most populous state, and added that he has been invited to attend the swearing-in ceremony.
