Prime Minister Narendra Modi today held a meeting with BJP chief Amit Shah and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

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

According to reports, PM Modi and other leaders are reviewing the state of economy in view of the RBI survey which predicts a bleak scenario. Some major announcements are expected post the meeting. 

The meeting also holds significance as BJP chief Amit Shah unexpectedly cut short his Kerala event and returned to the national capital to attend this meeting.

Named "Jana Raksha Yatra", Shah had walked on Tuesday from Payanur in Kannur district with hundreds of Bharatiya Janata Party activists and promised to return on Thursday morning to walk past Vijayan's home at Pinarayi.

The earlier plan was that Shah would walk nine kilometres and address a public meeting at Tellichery. According to the BJP, Shah has been called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Defending his government's economic policies, the Prime Minister had yesterday hinted that he was ready for changes in the newly-implemented Goods and Services Tax laws, in order to resolve the issues faced by people. 

The government will continue the reforms and will not hesitate to take decisions to reverse the GDP slowdown that was witnessed in last two quarters, he said.

Lashing out at the critics of his economic policies, Modi told in a meeting of Company Secretaries that the economy was on firm footing and that he will never jeopardise the country's future for present gains.

"I will not jeopardise the future of the country for my present gains," he said, adding the government would focus on structural reforms rather than giving doles to win praises.
