The party delegation was planning to meet the Prime Minister to discuss about the irregularities in the ration allocation to the state.
The PMO has reportedly responded to the request, saying the chief minister can meet Food and Public Distribution Minister, Ram Vilas Paswan, if needed.
Last week also CM Pinarayi Vijayan had sought an appointment to meet Prime Minister Modi to discuss the same issue. Earlier on March 20, 2017, the Chief Minister’s Office wished to meet the Prime Minister to appraise about budget allocation to the state.
