Former Union minister Jitin Prasada, who recently switched from the Congress to the BJP, on Saturday met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath here and said they discussed issues related to strengthening the organisation.

“I met the chief minister and sought his blessings,” said Prasada who arrived in his home state Uttar Pradesh for the first time after joining the BJP on June 9.

A UP government official termed it as a “courtesy meeting”.

Prasada said they discussed ways to ensure that the welfare schemes reach the public more effectively and the party organisation is strengthened further “so that the state and the country can be served”.

On the decision to join the BJP, Prasada said it is the only party where the people are rewarded for their hard work. “There is high enthusiasm among my supporters, and this decision was taken keeping in mind public sentiments.
