Manmohan Singh: UPA committed to food security bill
New Delhi: The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government is committed to enacting the food security bill after considering all opinions, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Wednesday.

"The food security bill is a very important legislation for the government. The UPA is committed to make this law after considering all opinions," he told reporters here.

Corruption, he said, was a major issue in the country and all sections of society should sit together and find a solution to the problem.

Food Minister K.V. Thomas on Tuesday moved the food security bill, saying it was a key UPA legislation that would give the right to subsidised grain to around 67 percent of the population.

Both houses have seen repeated disruptions by opposition parties over the allocation of coal blocks and 2G spectrum. On Wednesday, parliament was adjourned sine die.

The BJP had said it would not let parliament function till Manmohan Singh resigns over the alleged involvement of his office in the irregularities in the allocation of coal blocks and 2G spectrum, and Law Minister P.K. Bansal and Law Minister Ashwani Kumar quit too.

While Bansal's nephew was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for allegedly taking a bribe for the appointment of a member of the Railway Board, Ashwani Kumar has come under attack in the Supreme Court for vetting the CBI report on coal allocation.
