This meeting comes a day after Yogi Adityanath met Home Minister Amit Shah amid reports of dissent in Uttar Pradesh
Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath on Friday morning reached the residence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi for a crucial meeting amid speculation of a state Cabinet reshuffle ahead of the crucial UP Assembly election.
Yogi Adityanath’s visit to New Delhi to meet the BJP top brass comes close on the heels of the party holding a series of review meetings in Lucknow, which had fuelled speculation of a ministerial reshuffle in the state.
The Uttar Pradesh CM, who is on a two-day visit to Delhi, had on Thursday met senior BJP leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
“Met respected Union Home Minister Amit Shah in New Delhi as a courtesy and received his guidance. Heartfelt thanks to the respected home minister for his time,” the chief minister tweeted in Hindi along with a photo that shows him presenting to Shah a copy of the report ‘Solution of Migrant Crisis’.
The UP CM’s visit to New Delhi came a day after Jitin Prasada left the Congress and joined the BJP.
