New Delhi: Petroleum Minister Veerappa Moily has said that it is difficult to restore diesel subsidy to solve the crisis in Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC).
The Union Minister made it clear during a meeting with Chief Minister Ommen Chandy in Delhi on Monday.
Moily, however, also asked the State government to opt for Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) as an alternative option to deal with the crisis.
The Minister further said that the Centre will allot Rs 100 cr to set up a CNG plant in Kochi to cater to the need of KSRTC.
Chandy also met Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde and Health Minister Gulam Nabi Asad.
