Government hopes Parliament passes food bill
New Delhi: The government expressed hope that the food security bill scheduled to be debated in the Lok Sabha on Monday would be passed.
"Government wants to get the food bill passed under all circumstances. If the opposition has suggestions, we will look at them," Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajeev Shukla told reporters.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath expressed hope the bill would be passed without amendments.
"We have discussed the food bill informally, I would urge the opposition not to move amendments," Kamal Nath told a news channel.
Kamal Nath also defended the RTI amendment bill.
"If under RTI parties get questions like why did you give ticket to a particular candidate, that is not for people to ask," he said.
