New Delhi, Jun 11 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday held meetings with Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP president J P Nadda amid speculation about a reshuffle in the Union cabinet, an exercise Modi has not undertaken since forming the government for a second time in May 2019.
Tomorrow, Dharmendra Pradhan, Narendra Singh Tomar, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Mahendra Nath Pandey, Hardeep Puri will be reviewing the work of their respective ministries. VK Singh also held a review meeting with the PM on this initiative.
There is also a growing buzz about the Cabinet expansion in Uttar Pradesh after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath met the BJP top brass during his two-day visit to the national capital.
Sources, however, added that Modi has been meeting Union ministers in different batches of late, and Nadda has also been present there.
There has been no official word from the party on these deliberations.
The BJP has of late engaged in the review of its organisation and government works in different states.
Nadda had also held a meeting with the party general secretaries where, besides the relief work carried out by the saffron organisation during the COVID-19 pandemic, its performance in the recent assembly polls were reviewed.
With the party now gearing up for the next round of assembly polls in five states early next year, including in all important Uttar Pradesh, it is expected to take various measures to bolster its social equation. India Today (With inputs from PTI)
