"There was no discussion on any issue. It was just a courtesy meeting with the BJP president over lunch," state revenue minister and independent MLA Rohan Khaunte told
reporters after the meeting.

Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party's MLAs led by Sudin Dhavalikar, two Goa Forward Party ministers Vinod Palyekar and Jayesh Salgaoncar, and art and culture minister Govind Gaude met Shah over the lunch.

However, Goa Forward Party leader and state agriculture minister Vijai Sardesai could not attend the meeting as he was out of station.

The BJP chief is on two-day visit to the coastal state from Saturday.

He would be addressing two different events during which he would meet various professionals in the city.

Shah would be inaugurating the party's South Goa office in Margao on Sunday.
