"This is the century of Hindutva, not just in India but in the entire world", he said. "Hindus will rule, so you had better behave".

In his first interaction with mediapersons after taking over, Adityanath said that his government will follow the "sabka saath sabka vikas" (With all, development for all) agenda in serving the state. The BJP won the biggest majority for any party in the state legislature in 40 years.

The swearing-in ceremony was the culmination of a seven-phased Assembly election spread over two months in the most populous state, which gave BJP a landslide victory in the 403-member Assembly. There will be record development, "tweeted PM Modi". When UP develops, India develops.

The rise of the Hindu priest-turned-politician in Uttar Pradesh, a state prone to sectarian strife, surprised many after Modi made his development agenda the focus of his campaign in the region, which is traditionally fractured along caste and religious lines.

India's 1.3 billion people are about 80 percent Hindu and 14 percent Muslim, with the rest made up of Christians, Sikhs and other minorities.

He has won the parliamentary seat from Gorakhpur district in Uttar Pradesh since 1998.

"We will adhere to the credo of "development for all" initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi", Adityanath added. Kohli also dismissed suggestions that Adityanath's election would undermine the secular basis of Indian democracy. The firebrand Hindutva leader, who has a strong support base in eastern Uttar Pradesh, spoke of the deteriorating law and order situation in the state and said action would be taken to bring peace to Uttar Pradesh.

On portfolios, Sharma said that no decision has been taken in this regard as of now and the chief minister will decide it later. He is known for inciting communal hatred and a preacher of the dangers of love-jihad and has been an advocate of ghar wapsi. He had 18 criminal cases registered against him according to one tally during the 2014 parliament elections, including attempted murder, criminal intimidation and rioting. However, in choosing these leaders, the BJP has also ignored western and north-western Uttar Pradesh, from where it swept the 2017 elections.
