SP favours all-party meet on Food Security Bill
Lucknow: Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on saturday said his party was against the existing Food Security Bill but favoured an all-party meeting to discuss the issue.
"We are against the existing Food (Security) Bill," the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister told reporters here. Asked whether the Congress party was making efforts to cajole him following his opposition to the Food Security Bill, he said there was no such thing.
"Nobody has cajoled me so far. I don`t know from where you got the news," the SP head said. Mulayam, who met ailing Uttar Pradesh Labour minister Waqar Ahmad Shah in a hospital here, said in a democracy, an all-party meet could be held to discuss any issue.
"There is democracy and they may call an all-party meet to discuss the matter (Food Security Bill). But no discussions have taken place so far," he said.
