PM meets Prez; discusses Mumbai

December 09, 2008 20:39 IST

On the eve of a brief session of Parliament, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] on Tuesday met President Pratibha Patil [Images] and discussed internal security, the Mumbai terror attack and other issues of national importance.

The hour-long meeting took place amid speculation that the prime minister would soon be undertaking a cabinet reshuffle in the wake of resignation of Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil [Images] and indisposition of Information and Broadcasting Minister P R Dasmunsi.

During the meeting, the prime minister briefed the President about the recent happenings in Mumbai, internal security, forthcoming session of Parliament and other issues of national and international importance, a Rashtrapati Bhavan [Images] spokesperson said.

This is the first meeting between the President and the prime minister after the November 26 terror strikes in the financial capital that continued for more than 60 hours. Patil was on a two-nation tour to Indonesia and Vietnam when the attack took place.
