Housing Society in Colaba in south Mumbai. Dwivedi said Gandhi has asked the Finance Minister Mukherjee and Defence Minister Antony to submit the report on the issue and any decision will be taken only after receiving the same."Any further development on the issue would take place only after their report," he said.
