UP CM Yogi Adityanath's Pet Dog, Kalu, Has Become the Internet's Newest Celebrity
The black Labrador is named 'Kalu' and is said to be very fond of Adityanath.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's pet dog has turned into an internet celebrity. Photographs of Yogi petting the black Labrador have flooded the social media.

The black Labrador is named 'Kalu' and is said to be very fond of Adityanath. "Whenever Yogi Adityanath comes to Gorakhpur, Kalu goes almost berserk. He jumps around in joy," said a source.

On Monday, Kalu got photographed with the Chief Minister who fed him pieces of 'paneer'.

Dwarika Tiwari, the office-in-charge of the Goraksh temple, told reporters that Yogi Adityanath is particularly fond of Kalu.

"Kalu was brought to the Goraksh temple in December 2016 and Yogi Adityanath became Chief Minister three months later in March 2017. Yogiji earlier had a dog named Raja Babu who had died and he (Yogi) was rather disturbed after that.

"This black dog was gifted to Yogiji in Delhi by a temple devotee. For some time, Kalu remained in Delhi and was then brought to Gorakhpur," Tiwari said.

Other devotees in the temple also feel that Kalu has been extremely lucky for Yogi Adityanath. Before he became Chief Minister, he would personally take care of Kalu and feed him.

"Kalu is a pure vegetarian and eats either milk and roti or the food that is prepared in the temple. In the absence of Yogi Adityanath, it is his aide Himalaya Giri who takes care of Kalu.

"Special arrangements have been made for Kalu so that he does not have to suffer the vagaries of weather," said Tiwari.

The Chief Minister regularly visits Gorakhpur and whenever he comes, Kalu rushes to meet him. "Till Yogi Adityanath is in the temple complex, Kalu stays put with him," said a devotee.
