NEW DELHI: Uttar Pradesh chief minister-designate Yogi Adtiyanath on Sunday held a two-hour long meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the latter’s residence in New Delhi following BJP’s historic victory in the politically crucial state.

“Met Yogi Adityanath ji today. I congratulated him on the historic win in the Uttar Pradesh elections,” the Prime Minister tweeted after the meeting.

“I am sure that in the years to come, he will take the state to greater heights of development,” PM Modi said.

Earlier in the day, Yogi Adityanath had called on Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu and BJP general secretary BL Santhosh.

Adityanath also met BJP president JP Nadda and Union home minister Amit Shah.

Set to take oath as the chief minister for a second term after Holi, Adityanath’s talks with the top party leadership are likely to centre around a host of issues related to the government formation besides being a formal exercise.

According to sources, the Uttar Pradesh CM-elect is likely to be in the national capital for two days.

The BJP won 255 seats in the 403-member assembly in the seven-phase UP elections. Its two allies secured another 18 seats.
