Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Monday defended UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and said it is unfair to criticise Adityanath without giving him fair opportunity.

"It is very unfair to criticise Adityanath without giving him fair opportunity," Naidu said.

"RSS never interferes with selection of chief ministers," he said on choice of Adityanath as UP CM.

The Union minister had said that Adityanath will care for all sections of people and will prove critics wrong. He will become one of the most successful CMs.

Naidu's statement comes in the wake of reports that RSS played a major role in selecting Adityanath as UP chief minister.
