Yogi Adityanath meets PM Modi amid friction in Uttar Pradesh BJP ahead of election


Mangalore Today News Network

New Delhi, Jun 11, 2021: Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath on Friday morning met 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.

 


The meeting between Yogi Adityanath and Narendra Modi at PM’s residence lasted for more than an hour, sources said.

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 Uttar Pradesh.

Sources have said Yogi Adityanath’s two-day visit to Delhi is to give the latest report of a meeting with UP BJP leaders and the speculations in recent times.

The UP chief minister had held a meeting on Wednesday night with state BJP chief Swatantra Dev Singh and state general secretary in-charge of the organisation Sunil Bansal in Lucknow.

 


Although the government said it was a routine meeting which is held every month, Sunil Bansal had reached Lucknow via helicopter to attend this meeting, sources said.

There have been rumours of a change in leadership in Uttar Pradesh ahead of the crucial assembly election next year and growing criticism of the Yogi government for failing to control the second wave of Covid-19 efficiently.

The Uttar Pradesh CM had on Thursday met senior BJP leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. Yogi Adityanth’s visit to New Delhi assumes significance as the crucial state of Uttar Pradesh is going to polls early next year.

“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’.

Apna Dal (S) leader Anupriya Patel, a BJP ally from Uttar Pradesh who was a minister in the first Modi-led government, also met Amit Shah, in an indication that the saffron party is reaching out to its partners as it works to bolster its position in the state which will go to the assembly poll early next year.
