The meeting between Modi and Ramdev was considered significant, particularly in the backdrop of the latter's reported statement last week in New Delhi, telling the BJP that he would support that party only if Narendra Modi is declared as its prime ministerial candidate.

Ramdev, who is considered as a staunch Modi supporter, has openly praised him several times.
