New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday held a meeting with BJP chief Amit Shah and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.Though officials did not say what was discussed in the meeting, it came ahead of Modi’s proposed visit to poll-bound Gujarat on October 7 and 8.

BJP Kerala president Kummanam Rajasekharan told reporters that Shah would be unable to attend the phase of the ‘Janaraksha Yatra’ (People’s Protection March) as he has to attend a meeting with the prime minister in the national capital.
