Modi had invited all Gujarat MPs across the party lines, but Bavalia was the only Congress MP to attend the meet.
“As the convenor of 11 Congress MPs here, I attended the meet,” Bavalia told HT. “We discussed the issues in Gujarat and I offered to arrange a meeting of the Gujarat MPs with the PM or Union ministers.”
Bavalia, however, underlined that he voiced his disagreement over the charges made by the Gujarat government that the Centre was not releasing adequate funds for the state’s development. “I said the Centre is giving funds, but the question is how you are utilising it.”
