New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the capital.
Adityanath, who arrived in Delhi earlier in the day, will also meet President Pranab Mukherjee and BJP chief Amit Shah.
Allocation of ministerial berths in Yogi Adityanath's council of ministers is likely to come up for discussion at a meeting.
Adityanath left for Delhi this morning to take part in the meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Board, a BJP spokesperson said in Lucknow.
"The meeting of the BJP's Parliamentary Board is being held in Delhi today. Apart from Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, his counterparts from Manipur, Goa, and Uttarakhand are also participating in the meeting," UP BJP spokesperson Rakesh Tripathi told PTI.
"The discussion on allocation of ministerial berths in Yogi Adityanath's council of ministers may also be discussed in Delhi with party chief Amit Shah and PM Modi," said a senior party leader requesting anonymity.
Earlier speaking to PTI, UP Cabinet minister Siddhartha Nath Singh said that the portfolios of new ministers are likely to be announced "very soon". "The portfolios are being worked out. The process for allocation of departments is on and hopefully it will be done very soon," Singh said.
Currently, Yogi Adityanath is the Gorakhpur MP, and is not a member of either Houses of the UP Legislature. UP has a bicameral legislature.
