Cabinet minister and government spokesperson Srikant Sharma said the CM was firm on repealing obsolete laws which were the legacy of earlier regimes.
Satya Prakash Yadav, a personal security officer of then Samajwadi Party leader Talat Aziz, was killed during a protest, allegedly by a group led by Adityanath.

Modi's insistence on development being the only aim of the Adityanath government appears to be an attempt to allay apprehensions.
Twenty-two ministers including, Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma were sworn in as deputy chief ministers by Governor Ram Naik in the 17th UP Assembly.
