UP CM Yogi Adityanath meets Amit Shah, to call on PM Modi tomorrow

WHAT?

Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath reached Union Home Minister Amit Shah's residence in New Delhi today. He is on a 2-day visit to Delhi & is expected to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow.

WHO?

Apna Dal MP Anupriya Patel will also meet Amit Shah at 5 pm.

His visit assumes significance as the politically crucial state of Uttar Pradesh is going to polls early next year.

WHY?

The UP chief minister held a meeting late 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 that it was a routine meeting which is held every month, Sunil Bansal had reached Lucknow via helicopter to attend this meeting, sources said.

It is being said that Yogi Adityanath has come to Delhi to give the latest report of the meeting and the speculations in recent times.

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.
