Modi praised UP’s measures to fight the second wave: UP government | India News
The meeting between Modi and Adityanath was carried out in the context of speculation of the BJP leadership unhappiness with the CM and a plan to clip its wings. The UP government’s description of what happened at the hour-long meeting as a response to the rumors that have stoked rumors of an “imminent” change in Lucknow, leaving BJP circles simultaneously baffled and intrigued by its perseverance .
Shortly after the meeting, an obscure news site quoted “PMO sources” as saying that AK Sharma, the former bureaucrat who served in Modi’s office before being nominated as an MLC at UP, would be appointed as senior deputy minister. When contacted, the sources in the PMO he criticized the claim as “false.”
During the meeting, Adityanath expressed his gratitude for the Center’s help during the peak of the crisis. He especially thanked the Center for sending oxygen to trains and planes. He told the prime minister that the funds provided by the Cares program would help the state government establish oxygen plants in all districts.
Adityanath engagements in Delhi, which included meetings with the Home Secretary. Amit shah and the head of the BJP, JP Nadda, have been linked to the possibility of a ministerial reorganization in UP. The presence of Anupriya Patel, who heads the BJP ally in UP Apna Dal, in the meeting that Shah had with the CM, has been seen as an indicator of the expansion of the ministry, which will probably be undertaken with a view to appeasing the ally and accommodate claims from within.
The official statement about Modi’s compliment to the CM was also seen as a sign that Adityanath was feeling calm, as the BJP leaders are not expected to spin events related to the PM.
The “talk of change”, which has hit the CM for some time, intensified during the second wave of Covid-19 infections. The statements of the BJP general secretary in charge of the BL Santosh party organization praising the state government for taming the threat gave no respite.
During the meeting with Modi, Adityanath said that the Center’s decision to provide vaccines to the state would help speed up the vaccination campaign, which has been put in place with the BJP organizing machinery that helps the state government boost the massive undertaking.
Adityanath also spoke about the development work done by his government and the projects, which will be completed in the near future. He told the prime minister how his government tried to strike a balance between saving lives and livelihoods by imposing partial curfews, rather than a total lockdown.
He informed the prime minister of the state government’s decision to swiftly implement Prime Minister Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, which involves free grains of up to 5kg for those in need, until Diwali.
