Though officials did not say what was discussed in the meeting, it came ahead of Modi's proposed visit to poll-bound Gujarat on 7-8 October.

Shah, who was scheduled to address a rally in the home town of Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday, cut short his programme to rush to Delhi for the meeting.

BJP Kerala president Kummanam Rajasekharan told reporters that Shah would be unable to attend the phase of the 'Janaraksha Yatra' (People's Protection March) as he has to attend a meeting with the prime minister in the national capital.

The meeting also took place a day after Modi had defended his government's economic decisions amid opposition onslaught over slow economic growth.
