BJP President Amit Shah today met Prime Minister Narendra Modi amid reports of a reshuffle in the Union Cabinet. There was no official word on what transpired in the meeting, and party sources played down its significance, saying such an exercise, which is also attended often by Union Ministers Arun Jaitley, Rajnath Singh and Sushma Swaraj, happens almost every month.
Top party leaders take stock of political affairs in the meet. There has been a strong buzz in the party for some time about a reshuffle.
Uttar Pradesh, which goes to the polls early next year, is likely to get more representation and besides Assam, whose Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal was a Union Minister before he returned to lead the state government.
Some state ministers could also be elevated to Cabinet rank, sources said.
