The Right to Food Campaign has questioned the hurry shown by the United Progressive Alliance government in taking the ordinance route on important legislation like the National Food Security Bill.
“Appalled” at the decision, the Campaign — a conglomeration of civil society groups — said the food security issue required deep and informed debate in Parliament. “To ensure collective responsibility in its implementation, the Bill needs to be passed in Parliament taking along all State governments and political parties.”
