Despite a 70-year history, UP has reportedly had only three CMs complete their tenure, with Adityanath the latest entrant to the exclusive club.

On a lighter note, the priest-turned-politician has also broken the 'Noida jinx'. A visit to Noida, near Delhi, was dreaded in political circles as the cause of UP Chief Ministers' loss in elections. Former CMs Mulayam Singh Yadav, Kalyan Singh, and Rajnath Singh had reportedly avoided visiting the NCR city when they were power, after Veer Bahadur Singh and ND Tiwari lost the CM's throne after a trip to Noida.
