Unlike Modi wave, this time the BJP's victory in the UP municipal polls 2017 is all credited to Yogi wave.
In other words, UP CM Yogi Adityanath is considered the man behind the superb performance of BJP in the most populous state of the country.
The BJP has won 14 out of 16 mayoral seats in the three-phase UP local body polls held recently for which Yogi Adityanath did extensive campaigning.
The urban body elections 2017 in Uttar Pradesh were seen by many as a test for CM Yogi Adityanath.

Now, the BJP is planning to cash Yogi's personality in Gujarat too as he is all set to hold many rallies in the state, asking votes for the saffron party.
"Yogi is a saint, he is doing good in Uttar Pradesh. Gujarat people also respect him. His campaigning is very fruitful for the party and it will benefit BJP in the election," said Vijay Rupani, CM of Gujarat, in an exclusive byte to ABP News.
He also added that the UP CM will hold more rallies in Gujarat.
Indirectly hinting how important UP civic polls 2017 were for BJP, PM Narendra Modi said during a rally that, "Winter reaches UP first and then Gujarat".
