CM Akhilesh Yadav to stay away from PM Modi's event due to 'Noida jinx'

Noida: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav may not attend the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's scheduled event in Noida on Thursday, December 31 owing to the so-called "Noida jinx". According to the reports, several chief ministers of Uttar Pradesh, including Veer Bahadur Singh, Narayan Dutt Tiwari, Kalyan Singh and Mayawati lost their chairs soon after visiting Noida.

"In the meeting to review preparations for the PM's visit, Panchyati Raj Minister Kailash Yadav was nominated to represent the CM in Noida. Arrangement has been made on the dias for the minister (in place of CM)," IG, Law and Order A Satish Ganesh told media when asked about possibility of CM Yadav visiting Noida. 

"As of now, only the minister will be attending PM's programme," he said.
