New Delhi: Home minister Amit Shah on Monday met with external affairs minister S Jaishankar and commerce minister Piyush Goyal for nearly 2 hours. The meeting was held without officials, amid the standoff with China and the Covid-19 pandemic. Details were not known. The Indo-Tibetan Border Police and the Seema Suraksha Bal, who patrol boundaries with China and Nepal, fall under the home ministry. The presence of commerce minister Goyal amid campaign for boycott of Chinese products created a buzz. Goyal also heads the railway ministry, responsible for Shramik special trains that ferry migrant workers to their homes. In an interview to news agency ANI, Shah had said India will emerge victorious on both fronts — Covid-19, which originated in Wuhan, and the border standoff with China. Shah had stepped in earlier this month after the number of Covid-19 cases in the national capital spiraled.
