Manmohan Singh deferred proposal on food bill ordinance
New Delhi: Keeping in mind the reservations of the Samajwadi Party, the Left parties and Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday deferred a proposal to consider the ordinance route to give effect the food security bill, informed sources said here.

According to the sources, the prime minister announced in the cabinet meeting on Thursday morning that the ordinance should be deferred as many political parties had suggested a debate on the bill in parliament.

Manmohan Singh also asked Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath to hold a fresh round of consultations with the opposition parties to evolve a consensus on the food security bill, the sources said.

The general mood in the cabinet was in favour of a special session of parliament to pass the food bill, they said.

The National Food Security Bill aims to provide subsidised food grain to around 67 percent of India's 1.2 billion people. Around 800 million people would thus get the subsidised grain, at an initial cost of around Rs.1.3 lakh crore.
