While replying to a question in Parliament, he stated that there is a crisis in the industry due to inadequate supply of the key raw materials and the government was trying to resolve it as soon as possible. He stated that the recent Supreme Court order cancelling coal block allocations have not had an adverse impact yet as the mines have been allowed to function till 31 March 2015. The Steel Ministry has been working closely with the Coal Ministry to ensure adequate supplies of raw materials are provided to the industry.
