New Delhi, Mar 30 (ANI): The Ministry of Defence (MoD) today said that Defence Minister A K Antony had asked the Secretary (Defence Production) in October 2009 to look into the various issues raised against the public sector BEML by Congress leader D Hanumanthappa.
Hanumanthappa had sent the complaints in August 2009 to Congress President Sonia andhi, who passed it on to senior party leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.
Azad, also the Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare, then forwarded the complaints to Antony.
