CM Biren Singh had gone to Delhi on June 30 and held talks with BJP central leaders, including union home minister Amit Shah and BJP chief JP Nadda in the national capital.

However, Singh did not disclose the outcome of meetings with the leaders in Delhi.
“The Central leaders does not interfere much in functioning the government. However, being BJP is a national party, it is my duty to seek advice and suggestions from the national leaders,” Singh said.
I think at the earliest, the positive solutions for everyone is coming with the blessings of the central leaders, he added.
It may be mentioned that just before days he left for Delhi, Singh had informed to media persons that assigning portfolios to the four National People’s Party (NPP) MLAs, who had revoked their decision and reaffirmed their support to BJP-led coalition government in the state, will be decided after talking with BJP Central leaders during his planned visit to Delhi.
