Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday night discussed with Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan the drought-like situation as also the security scenario in the state arising following the blasts in Pune and exodus of people of Northeastern states.

Earlier, Singh arrived here on a two-day visit during which he will be the chief guest at the closing ceremony of sesquicentennial celebration of Bombay High Court and deliver the convocation address at Indian Institute of Technology on Saturday.

The high court function, to be held at National Centre for Performing Arts, will be attended by Chief Justice of India S H Kapadia, Maharashtra Governor K Sankaranarayanan, Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid, Attorney General G E Vahanavati, Goa Governor B V Wanchoo, and Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parikkar.
