New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s 27-hour visit to Delhi has been completed and he has returned to UP. CM Yogi met President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP President JP Nadda, along with many big leaders, on his visit from Muktsar amidst the political excitement of UP.
After the quick meetings of the CM, Home Minister Shah and JP Nadda reached the PM residence late on Friday evening to discuss the political situation in Uttar Pradesh. This meeting of PM Modi with top BJP leaders is being considered very important regarding the current developments in Uttar Pradesh.
One and a half hour meeting with PM Modi
CM Yogi met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, the second day of his Delhi tour, at his official residence at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg. Chief Minister Yogi, who came out of the Prime Minister’s residence after this long meeting of about 1 hour and 20 minutes, did not talk to the journalists and went straight to his residence to meet BJP President JP Nadda.
Meanwhile, in a tweet, Yogi said, “Had the privilege of receiving courtesy visit and guidance from respected Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji in New Delhi today. Heartfelt gratitude to the respected Prime Minister for giving time and kind guidance to meet your busy routine.
CM’s discussion on various issues with Nadda
CM Yogi’s meeting with JP Nadda also went on for a long time. After this, he tweeted and said, “Today, by meeting respected national president JP Nadda ji in New Delhi, received his guidance on various subjects. Thank you to respected president ji for giving me time from my busy routine.”
Also met Home Minister Shah
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.
After meeting Amit Shah, the CM tweeted, “Today received his guidance from respected Union Home Minister Amit Shah ji by giving a courtesy call in New Delhi. Heartfelt thanks to the respected Home Minister for providing his valuable time for the visit.”
Shah’s meeting with the leaders of allies
On the one hand, the marathon meetings of CM Yogi were going on and on the other hand the leaders of BJP’s allies of Uttar Pradesh held meetings with Amit Shah in Delhi. On Thursday, Nishad Party President Dr Sanjay Nishad and Apna Dal’s Anupriya Petal held a meeting with Amit Shah.
There has been a stir in the politics of Uttar Pradesh since a few days.
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 BJP.
He is expected to get a place in the possible cabinet expansion
Former administrative officer and member of the Legislative Council of BJP in Uttar Pradesh A. K. Sharma has also been camping in Delhi for the last 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, but sources say that Jitin Prasad and Sharma, who belong to the reputed Brahmin family and political circles of the state, will be included in this possible expansion.
