Arun Jaitley meets Narendra Modi

india Updated: Sep 12, 2009 01:59 IST

Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley on Friday held a meeting with Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in Gandhinagar.

The meeting between Jaitley, who was in the state capital to attend a programme organised by Gujarat National Law University, and Modi lasted for about 45 minutes, party sources said.

The two leaders are understood to have discussed a range of issues including organisational affairs of the party and legal issues arising out of alleged fake encounter cases in the state, they said.

Gujarat Minister of State for Home Amit Shah was also present during the meeting when the leaders reportedly discussed the legal issues pertaining to the killing of Ishrat Jahan and Sohrabuddin Sheikh in allegedly fake encounters, the sources said.

Jaitley, who is a Rajya Sabha member from Gujarat, visited the state for the first time after BJP's 'Chintan Baithak' at Shimla, expulsion of Jaswant Singh from the party and subsequent churnings in the party.
