|Denial by PMO on Mumbai Mirror newspaper report|
The attention of the Prime Minister`s Office has been drawn to a news story published in Mumbai Mirror today, 15, September, 2012. The allegation that the Prime Minister talked to the UPA Chairperson and communicated to her that his office had cleared the coal block allotment on the recommendation of her political secretary is completely untrue. This is a scurrilous, irresponsible and mischievous report. It is hoped that other newspapers or media outlets do not reproduce or repeat the baseless story.
