New Delhi: BJP leader Sushma Swaraj on Sunday said the Monsoon Session of Parliament could be preponed to pass the Food Security Bill and added that the party was not opposed to a special session of the Houses being convened for the purpose.

Reacting to reports that the government was considering an ordinance or a special session of Parliament to consider the Food Security Bill, she tweeted, "On the National Food Security Bill, there are media reports that the government is considering the option of an ordinance or to convene a special session of the Parliament. The ordinance route for such an important legislation is not desirable."

"We are not opposed to a special session of the Parliament. The better option will be to prepone the monsoon session which is anyway due in July," She added.
