Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday.

Yogi Adityanath met PM Modi at his residence, a day after meeting Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

The Chief Minister, who is on a two-day visit to the national capital from Thursday to meet the BJP top brass, is also scheduled to meet party president JP Nadda in the afternoon.

His visit comes close on the heels of the party holding a series of review meetings in Lucknow, which had fuelled speculation of a ministerial reshuffle in the state. During his meeting with Amit Shah, Yogi Adityanath presented a copy of the report 'Solution of Migrant Crisis'.

His visit to the national capital started a day after Jitin Prasada quit the Congress and joined the BJP. BJP MLC A K Sharma, a former IAS officer who is seen as a trusted hand of PM Modi, is also in Delhi to meet party leaders and allies.

BJP's general secretary (organisation) B L Santhosh had earlier this month visited the state to review the party's preparations for the assembly elections and held meetings with key ministers and organisation leaders.

Senior BJP leader Radha Mohan Singh, who is in-charge of the party's affairs in Uttar Pradesh, had also visited the state.
