According to official sources, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday night held a meeting with top bureaucrats from key ministries before the result of the Lok Sabha Election 2019. There is however no official word on the agenda of the meeting.
This is reportedly the first time that Prime Minister Narendra Modi convened a meeting of the top bureaucrats from key ministries since the announcement of dates of Lok Sabha general elections in March.
The sources have reported that the Prime Minister is believed to have taken feedback on various issues, including about the state of the economy, from the bureaucrats. The government has also already asked all the ministries and departments to prepare their 100-day agenda, they added.
Earlier in the day, PM Modi had met with his cabinet ministers and attended a dinner for leaders of NDA allies hosted by BJP president Amit Shah.
The dinner was attended by Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal (United) president Nitish Kumar, Shiv Sena supremo Uddhav Thackeray, Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ram Vilas Paswan among others.
Meanwhile earlier on Tuesday, leaders of 22 opposition parties also met EC officials and demanded verification of VVPAT slips of randomly-selected polling stations before votes are counted.
Most exit polls have predicted PM Modi-led NDA coming back to power with a comfortable majority.
