There were two big stir in the politics of Uttar Pradesh on Thursday. The first is that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath suddenly reached Delhi. Here he met BJP National President JP Nadda and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. Secondly, Apna Dal (S) President and MP Anupriya Patel also met Home Minister Shah. After this meeting, once again discussions have started in the political corridor that Anupriya may join back in the Modi cabinet. He may get a place in the Union Cabinet in place of Harsimrat Kaur Badal.
Demand to increase the share of leaders in the UP government

Asked to include district panchayat president in UP and party leaders in the state corporation and commission. It is said that Shah and Anupriya have also agreed on many issues.
Did not get place in Modi’s second government
Apna Dal (S) President and MP Anupriya Patel met Home Minister Amit Shah.
When the Modi government came in 2014, Anupriya Patel was made a Minister of State in the Union Cabinet, but in 2019 she did not get a place. Since then she was said to be angry. However, he never openly attacked the Modi government or the Yogi government. Now assembly elections are to be held in Uttar Pradesh next year. In such a situation, Anupriya has again started talks about the alliance. It is said that during the meeting with Amit Shah on Thursday, he said that if this alliance is to continue in the elections next year, then for this he should be included in the Union Cabinet and his leaders should be given a place in the government in UP. Anupriya also pressurized her MLC husband Ashish Patel to include him in the Yogi cabinet. Apna Dal SK has 9 MLAs in UP. One MLA has been made a minister.
Discussions of Apna Dal’s alliance with Samajwadi Party
Till a few days ago, there was a lot of discussion about Anupriya Patel going with the Samajwadi Party in UP. It was being said that this time the Samajwadi Party is trying to form a strong alliance by joining small parties to defeat the ruling BJP in UP. In this episode, SP’s eyes are on Anupriya Patel’s Apna Dal (Sonelal). Anupriya has a good hold on Kurmi votes. So it holds special significance for both BJP and Samajwadi Party.
no political motive for the meeting
After Anupriya Patel’s meeting with Amit Shah, Dainik Bhaskar spoke to Apna Dal working president Ashish Patel. Ashish Patel said that ‘Party’s national president Anupriya Patel has a courtesy call on Home Minister Amit Shah. There was no political motive behind this. I could not meet the Home Minister in a long time. So she went to meet him. There is no agenda behind this.
