Adityanath calls on President Ram Nath Kovind
New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday called on President Ram Nath Kovind during his first visit to the national capital after the BJP registered a thumping victory in the state assembly polls.
Adityanath earlier also met senior BJP leader and Union minister Nitin Gadkari.
"Yogi Adityanath called on President Ram Nath Kovind at Rashtrapati Bhavan," the president's office tweeted and posted pictures of the meeting.
The Uttar Pradesh chief minister had also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, party chief J P Nadda and other senior leaders here on Sunday.
Adityanath's meeting with Modi had lasted for more than 100 minutes and he is believed to have discussed the broad contours of government formation and the structure of the new state cabinet.
The priest-turned-politician is also likely to meet BJP's poll in-charge for Uttar Pradesh and Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan, and co-incharge and Union minister Anurag Thakur.
