Kollam: Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan has put a lid on the controversy over the
alleged neglect of Kerala during the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s visit to Kerala stating that all issues have been resolved with Singh calling him over phone and expressing

He said Prime Minister had told him that problems were the result of confusion created by some of his colleagues and officials, Achuthanandan said.
