On first outing, Gujarat MLAs meet governor

Gujarat Congress legislators on Saturday ventured out for the first time from a private resort on the city outskirts where they have been camping for about a week and met the Karnataka governor, besides visiting the state secretariat here.

The Congress had sent its 44 legislators here on July 29 to fend off what it alleged were "poaching" attempts by the BJP ahead of the August 8 Rajya Sabha polls in Gujarat.

Sources said it was a courtesy visit, as Governor Vajubahi Vala also hails from Gujarat and had served as the speaker and the finance minister there. He enjoyed good rapport with the MLAs, they said.
