Amidst political speculation regarding Uttar Pradesh, a meeting is going on between PM Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP Chief JP Nadda at the Prime Minister’s residence. In the last two days, many fast meetings have taken place between these leaders. Today, PM Modi has also held talks with Yogi Adityanath for more than an hour. Amidst speculations of displeasure with Yogi, it is believed that a big decision can be stamped in this meeting. However, sources say that in the next assembly elections also Yogi will be the chief ministerial candidate and the purpose of these meetings is to prepare a strategy for the coming elections.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his official residence at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg. Chief Minister Yogi, who came out of the Prime Minister’s residence after meeting for more than a quarter of an hour, did not interact with the journalists and went straight to his residence to meet BJP President JP Nadda.
Yogi Adityanath, who came to Delhi on a two-day visit, met Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday and discussed various issues with him for about one and a half hours. In the meeting with Shah, Yogi also gave him a copy of the ‘Migrant Crisis Resolution’ report. Just a few days ago, BJP’s National General Secretary (Organisation) BL Santosh and the party’s Uttar Pradesh in-charge Radha Mohan Singh had visited Lucknow and reviewed the party’s preparations for next year’s assembly elections. During this, both the leaders had separate meetings with the state government ministers, legislators and key office bearers of the organization.
After this, Yogi Adityanath’s sudden arrival in Delhi and these meetings with the top leaders of the party are being seen as preparations for the BJP, Uttar Pradesh assembly elections. Along with this, it is also being linked to the possibilities of cabinet expansion in the state. Just a day before Yogi’s visit to Delhi, former Union Minister and Congress leader Jitin Prasada has joined the BJP.
Former administrative officer and member of the Legislative Council of BJP in Uttar Pradesh A.K. K. Sharma has also been camping in Delhi for the past few days and is meeting party leaders. Sharma is considered a confidante of Prime Minister Modi. Although there is no official information about the cabinet expansion in Uttar Pradesh so far, sources say that Jitin Prasad and Sharma, who belong to the state’s reputed Brahmin family and political circles, will be included in this possible expansion.
