MP: Mohan meets PM, HM amid buzz over bureaucratic reshuffle

Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh chief minister Mohan Yadav on Thursday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi amid buzz over a major bureaucratic reshuffle in the state.

An official press release issued here however said that Mr Yadav briefed Mr Modi on the progress of the two river-linking projects being undertaken in the state currently.

He invited Mr Modi to lay the foundation for the Ken-Betwa river linking project.

The state government is also undertaking a project to link the rivers of Parvati, Kalisingh and Chambal in the state.

This apart, the chief minister has apprised the PM of the implementation of various welfare schemes in the state, the press release said.

Mr Yadav who left here on Tuesday for a three-day-visit to Delhi to meet different Union ministers to discuss the various ongoing projects in the state also met Union home minister Amit Shah there.

The chief minister also met Union urban and housing development minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Union forest and environment minister Bhupendra Yadav in Delhi to discuss various projects related to Madhya Pradesh.

Mr Yadav is scheduled to visit Ayodhya on Thursday to attend various religious functions there. He is scheduled to return to Delhi on Thursday night from Ayodhya.

The chief minister’s meeting with the PM and HM has triggered speculations here that a major reshuffle in bureaucracy was on the cards.

The bureaucratic reshuffle in the state was expected ever since Mr Yadav assumed power in the state in the November, 2023 Assembly elections.

He has replaced four-time chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the post after BJP’s landslide victory in the polls.

However, the long pending bureaucratic reshuffle was reportedly held back due to the 2024 general elections.

Mr Yadav is most likely to overhaul the bureaucracy by going for a major reshuffle of bureaucracy, sources said.
