Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Monday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.

The development comes two days after the BJP government in the state led by Singh expanded his ministry to full strength, 12 ministerial posts, with the induction of six more ministers.

Soon after the induction ceremony, Singh said that the portfolios would be distributed to the newly-inducted ministers in a few days.

While speculations are doing the rounds that Singh’s visit could be related to the distribution of portfolios, a highly reliable source from the state BJP said Singh’s meeting with the central leaders was nothing but a courtesy call after he was sworn in as the chief minister of Manipur for the second time.
