He said it was to be courtesy meeting and some general issues were to be discussed with the Governor, but was cancelled as one of the MLAs could not reach.

“It was a courtesy meeting during which we would discuss some issues with him. It is not yet decided when the next meeting will happen,” Ali said.

He clarified that the agenda of the meeting had nothing to do with the BSP’s support to the Ashok Gehlot Government.
