New Delhi: UPA government's ambitious programme and Congress president Sonia Gandhi's pet project, the Food Security Bill was passed in the Lok Sabha on Monday. It seeks to provide cheap food grains to approximately 82 crore people in the country, ushering in the biggest programme in the world to fight hunger.
The passage of the bill will pave the way to give nation's two-third population the right to 5 kg of food grain every month at highly subsidised rates of Rs 1-3 per kg.
The bill was adopted by the House through a voice vote after a combined discussion on the measure and a statutory resolution seeking to disapprove the ordinance promulgated on July 5.
