In a bid to apprise Odisha’s concerns on the Polavaram Dam issue, the House Committee of Odisha Assembly Monday sought an appointment with the prime minister Narendra Modi.
Briefing to media, the House Committee member and Food and supplies minister Sanjay Das Burma said a panel headed by the Speaker of the Assembly has asked for an appointment with the prime minister between December 27 and January 18.
He said after getting a confirmation regarding the date for the meeting, a discussion will be held with BJP and Congress members of the House Committee in this regard.
