Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who is at loggerheads with Governor Kamla Beniwal over the Lokayukta's appointment, on Thursday met her at the Rajbhavan to greet her on the occasion of Gujarati New Year.

It was for the first time that Modi met the Governor in person since the controversy broke out over the appointment of the Lokayukta.

Later, Modi also met the public at the Circuit house after attending a get-together of IPS officers.

Following the appointment of retd Justice R A Mehta as Lokayukta by the Governor, on August 26, Modi government had challenged it in the Gujarat High Court, terming the decision as unconstitutional and unilateral.

The High Court, however, gave a split verdict on the issue and referred the matter to a third Judge.
