New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday held discussions with Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP President JP Nadda amid speculations of expansion and reshuffle in the Union Cabinet. After taking oath as the Prime Minister for the second consecutive time in the year 2019, Modi has not made any expansion in his cabinet.
There is speculation of cabinet expansion in Uttar Pradesh too. These speculations gained strength because Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was in the capital Delhi for two days and during this time he had a long discussion with Prime Minister Modi, meeting Shah and Nadda.
Sources said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is meeting his colleagues in the Union Council of Ministers in different groups. Nadda was also present during these meetings.
The exercise among top BJP leaders began after Shah met leaders of regional parties from Uttar Pradesh, Anupriya Patel of Apna Dal (S) and Sanjay Kumar Nishad and Praveen Kumar Nishad of Nishad Party, respectively.
Nothing has been said officially by the BJP about this exercise of meetings and discussions so far.
It is to be known that in the past, Nadda brainstormed for two days with party general secretaries and presidents of various fronts regarding the circumstances arising out of the second wave of Kovid-19 and the performance of the party in the recently concluded assembly elections and after that all the leaders had met with the Prime Minister.
Assembly elections are due in five states, including Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Punjab, early next year. The top leadership of BJP has started preparing for the better performance of the party in these elections.
