PM Modi holds meeting with Amit Shah, Nadda amid cabinet reshuffle
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday held discussions with Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP President JP Nadda amid speculation of a reshuffle in the Union Cabinet, an exercise Modi has not done since forming the government for the second time in May 2019.
There is also a discussion about cabinet expansion in Uttar Pradesh after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath met top BJP leaders during his two-day visit to the national capital.
However, sources said Modi has been meeting Union ministers several times and Nadda has also been present there.
The discussions between top BJP leaders at the prime minister’s residence came as Shah also met party colleagues from Uttar Pradesh, including Apna Dal’s Anupriya Patel, who was a minister in the first Modi government but in the next. did not attend.
There has been no official statement from the party on these discussions.
These days BJP is busy in reviewing its organization and government work in various states.
Nadda had also held a meeting with party general secretaries, where the saffron outfit’s performance in the recent assembly elections, apart from the relief work undertaken during the COVID-19 pandemic, was reviewed.
With the party now gearing up for the next round of assembly elections in five states, including the all-important Uttar Pradesh, early next year, it is expected to take several steps to strengthen its social equation.
