The BJP leader requested Singh to listen to the grievances of the food business operators, who demand that the government should defer enforcement of compulsory registration for “at least one year” and constitute a special task force to make an in-depth study of the Food Safety and Standard Act and its rules. An opportunity of personal hearing may  be granted to the federation to place their views in person before the committee and their difficulties to pursue the trade are to be understood by the government.
