Dr Singh had talks with the council of ministers and various other groups at a venue where the opposition political parties walked out alleging ''shabby treatment'' by the officials while keeping them waiting for more than two hours.

At Jorhat yesterday, he met the heads of monasteries and assured them to look into their grievances.
