In an effort to pacify party legislators disgruntled over denial of ministerial berths in the coalition government, two AICC Secretaries today met Congress MLAs here and heard their grievances.
He said the meeting lasted for about six hours. After tomorrow's discussions, the AICC secretaries would inform the decision makers of what was discussed, he said.
There is growing discontent among newly electedCongress lawmakers who were left out during the Cabinetexpansion, with many openly expressing dissatisfaction andholding separate meetings.
The disquiet that had come out in the open soon after the cabinet expansion last week has considerably gone silent in the last two days, following efforts by the party leadership to pacify upset MLAs.
Asked what he has he decided or asked for, Patil,without revealing much, said "the discussion itself is halfcomplete, let it be over."
During the weekend, Patil had visited his constituencyin Gadag, where his supporters have been demandingMinistership for him.
