While the BJP is edging towards victory in yet another state, BJP leader and UP CM Yogi Adityanath had a relatively turbulent day. On a visit to Kasganj, the Chief Minister's chopper malfunctioned and was forced to land on a field instead of the designated makeshift helipad at a school in Kasganj.
Yogi Adityanath's chopper was scheduled to land on the grounds of the Kasturba Gandhi Vidyalaya in Kasganj but, because of some problems, had to land in a field a kilometre away from the designated venue. The exact nature of the problem isn't known yet. Principal secretary (home), Arvind Kumar, has confirmed that the Chief Minister is safe and scheduled programmes would proceed as planned.
This isn't the first time that the Adityanath has experienced an emergency landing. In December 2017, while on the way to Siddharth Nagar in UP, the CM's chopper had to make an emergency landing in Faizabad due to an unexpected change in weather conditions.
