New Delhi: As preparations for government formation gained momentum, Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi on Sunday held talks with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in New Delhi.

Modi held a meeting with his close aide Amit Shah, party general secretary J.P. Nadda, former chief minister and Karnataka strongman B.S. Yedyurappa and Bihar in-charge Dharmendra Pradhan.

Political developments in Bihar in the wake of resignation of chief minister Nitish Kumar are understood to have also come up for discussion, party sources said.

BJP is maintaining a wait-and-watch stand in the state, they said, in the backdrop of the Janata Dal (United) legislature party meeting on Sunday to elect a leader.

Meanwhile, Modi will be formally elected as the leader of the BJP Parliamentary Party at its meeting here on 20 May ahead of taking oath as Prime Minister.

BJP president Rajnath Singh has said the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) allies will also be invited for a meeting on the same day where the leader of the coalition will also be chosen.

Modi arrived in Delhi on Saturday to a rousing welcome by the party and supporters and went to Varanasi where he took part in ‘Ganga aarti’ before returning to the national capital Saturday evening. PTI
