Sources in the Prime Minister’s Office have refused to comment on the meeting, however it is being speculated that Shah has briefed Modi about the Manipur situation as well as on the all-party meeting convened on June 24.
The meeting took place within 12 hours of the Prime Minister returning to India after his state visits to the US and Egypt.
