The chief minister is on a two-day visit to the National Capital from Thursday to meet the BJP top brass.
His visit comes close on the heels of the party holding a series of review meetings in Lucknow, which had fuelled speculation of a ministerial reshuffle in the state.
During his meeting with Shah, Adityanath presented a copy of the report 'Solution of Migrant Crisis'.
His visit to the national capital started a day after Jitin Prasada quit the Congress and joined the BJP. After Adityanath met Shah, Prasada called on the Uttar Pradesh chief minister.
BJP MLC AK Sharma, a former IAS officer who is seen as a trusted hand of Modi, is also in Delhi to meet party leaders and allies.
Though there is no official word on whether there will be a Cabinet expansion in Uttar Pradesh, sources said Prasada, who comes from a noted Brahmin family of the state with political heft, and Sharma may be accommodated in such an eventuality.
BJP's general secretary (organisation) BL Santhosh had earlier this month visited the state to review the party's preparations for the Assembly elections and held meetings with key ministers and organisation leaders.
Senior BJP leader Radha Mohan Singh, who is in-charge of the party's affairs in Uttar Pradesh, had also visited the state.
The Congress veteran said the top leadership should make a proper assessment of leaders in the party, asserting that 'one cannot make people leaders when they do not deserve it'
There will be relaxation in curfew in all districts from Wednesday, from 7 am to 7 pm, for five days as active cases have come below 600
Prasada joining BJP may settle question of Brahmin face; Congress can ignore Tikait's Mamata visit at its own peril
Prasada's induction will further wear away whatever’s left of the Congress and the Gandhis in Uttar Pradesh, even if it does not yield dividends for the BJP
