Union Minister Alagiri meets Prime Minister

Last updated on: September 08, 2009 23:18 IST
Union Minister for Chemical and Fertilizers MK Alagiri on Tuesday had a twenty minutes meeting with the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh in Delhi.

This meeting assumes significance from the backdrop of several complaints that Alagiri never stays in Delhi to take policy decision on various key issues.

At one or two occasions, Prime Minister's Office and its senior officials have phoned Alagiri to come to Delhi to sign policy files including that of the New Fertiliser Policy which was cleared by the Union Cabinet.

Alagiri does not have keen desire to continue in Delhi as a Union minister as he is mainly an 'organisational man,' he claims.
