Kanshiram Nagar(UP): Slamming Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati for her reservations over the proposed Food Security Bill, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi today said she had rejected it without giving it a proper thought.

"Like MNREGS, she has now rejected the Right to Food Bill within a day without giving it a proper thought saying it will not benefit anyone," he told an election meeting here.

"The measure (Bill) will ensure that no one remains hungry as every family will get 35 kgs of foodgrains," the Congress leader said.

Opponents of the measure were asking from where the money would come from, Rahul said adding "we will show them from where it will come."

Yesterday, BSP supremo Mayawati had termed the proposed Food Security Bill as impractical and an election stunt of the Congress.
