Modi meets Shah and Jaitley, discusses key issues

modi(IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday held a round of meeting with Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley at his residence.

“The BJP chief held a meeting with Prime Minister for about 20 minutes,” a party source told IANS here.

The two leaders were later also joined by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, he added.

“Various issues concerning the party and government figured in their discussions,” the source said, refusing to divulge details.

While there was no confirmation if a possible “reshuffle” of the union council of ministers figured in their meeting, party sources earlier indicated that Modi and the BJP leadership could consider “additional representation” from poll-bound states like Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Punjab in the union ministry.

A senior party leader, however, said, “cabinet expansion or reshuffle is essentially a prerogative of thed Prime Minister”.
