Amid suspense over the next Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Yogi Balaknath on Saturday (9 December) denied being a contender for the post, saying he is "yet to gain experience".
Balaknath's name was making the rounds on social media as one of the contenders for the Rajasthan CM post.
"The people have given me the opportunity to serve the nation by electing me as a Member of Parliament and a legislator for the first time under the leadership of the party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Please ignore the discussions going on in the media and social media since the election results were announced. I have yet to gain experience under the guidance of the Prime Minister," Balaknath said in a post in Hindi on X.

Former Bharatiya Janata Party's MP from Alwar, Yogi Balaknath resigned from his Lok Sabha seat on Thursday (7 December). In the recent Rajasthan Assembly elections, Balaknath contested the assembly election from the Tijara constituency in Alwar and won defeating Congress candidate Imran Khan. Balaknath's supporters address him as the 'Yogi of Rajasthan.' He is portrayed as a dynamic leader, who discusses 'Hinduism and Hindutva.' Balaknath belongs to the same Nath tradition as Yogi Adityanath.
