Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Thursday met senior BJP leader and Union minister Amit Shah in New Delhi, and is also likely to call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief JP Nadda during his two-day visit, sources said.
Adityanath's meeting with the central BJP leadership assumes significance as the politically crucial state of Uttar Pradesh is scheduled for assembly polls early next year.
Adityanath is visiting Delhi a day after Congress leader Jitin Prasada, who comes from a well-known Brahmin family in Uttar Pradesh, switched over to the BJP.
BJP's general secretary BL Santhosh had earlier this month visited the state to review the party's preparations for assembly elections.

Earlier this month, BJP general secretary organisation BL Santhosh was in Uttar Pradesh to meet party leaders and ministers to hear their concerns as the state prepares for the 2022 assembly elections.
