Gujrat: Amit Shah meets BJP leaders during 3-day visit


Surat: BJP President Amit Shah on Thursday met party leaders and ministers in Gujarat, where Assembly election is due in late 2017, and discussed organisational matters. According to reports, Shah's visit is an attempt to solve the infighting that the party is allegedly dealing with. Shah chaired a number of meetings, some of which were also attended by Mansukh Mandaviya, Jaswantsinh Bhabhor and Parshottam Rupala, the three MPs from Gujarat who have recently been inducted into the Union Cabinet.

The parleys hold significance in the wake of Assembly election next year and a possible Cabinet reshuffle ahead of that. He also gave guidance to state leaders on various issues as well as on strengtheing the party organisation," said Patel.

Shah, who is also an MLA from Gujarat, last evening took part in a felicitating ceremony of newly inducted Union Ministes from the state – Mansukh Mandaviya, Jaswantsinh Bhabhor and Parshottam Rupala. The BJP chief also attended an 'aarti' at Jagannath Temple last morning ahead of the Rath Yatra.
