    By Vicky

    BJP chief, Amit Shah held a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. Although it was not clear what the meeting discussed, sources say that the PM had asked Shah to stay in Delhi for some important consultations.

    Shah who was scheduled to address a rally in Kerala, cut short his visit to rush to Delhi. Shah had to return to Delhi due to compelling reasons, sources also said.

    Compelling reasons forced Shah to cut short Kerala visit: Sources

    Shah's meeting came ahead of Modi's visit to the poll bound Gujarat on October 7 and 8.

    While BJP sources did not clearly specify what the meeting was about, both the Congress and the CPI(M) took pot shots at Shah. The Congress suggested that infighting in the Kerala BJP could have been a factor. The CPI(M) said that he may have returned due to a poor response from the crowd during the yatra that Shah launched on Tuesday at Kannur.

    Shah's decision to pull out clearly shows the party has run out of steam. Secular credential of the state is very strong and he can't fan trouble here like some north Indian states," said Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala.

    But the BJP dismissed these charges. "Our political opponents are spreading lies. People who witnessed the last two days' developments won't say this," Kerala BJP leader K Rajasekharan said.
