He also said that Union home minister Amit Shah and principal secretary PK Mishra wanted to meet the officials of Boeing India regarding the defence deals.

Boeing India filed a case on June 30 following a complaint it received from PMO assistant director PK Issar while referring to a letter that Boeing sent claiming they received calls from PMO last year in November.
