The inaccessibility of the Chief Minister to MPs and MLAs in the state and his government’s poor handling of the pandemic have led to the differences among party leaders coming out in the open.
Amid reports of internal friction within the BJP, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath met Prime Minister Modi at his official residence in Delhi on Friday morning. The meeting lasted for an hour.
Adityanath’s visit to Delhi comes nearly a week after senior BJP leader BK Santosh led a central mission to Uttar Pradesh to take feedback and carry out a review in meetings with ministers, MLAs, MPs, and the Chief Minister too.

The inaccessibility of the Chief Minister to MPs and MLAs in the state and his government’s poor handling of the pandemic have led to the differences among party leaders coming out in the open. This has also led to murmurs of a major party shuffle in the lead-up to the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.
On Thursday, Yogi Adityanath held a 90-minute long meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah. With less than a year left for UP to elect its next government, the BJP has stepped up measures to iron out differences within the party.
The party is not looking at replacing Yogi Adityanath, sources have said, but other changes are likely, reported NDTV
After meeting the Prime Minister, Yogi Adityanath will also be meeting BJP President JP Nadda.
