Puducherry (Agencies): Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said that the UPA government was working Right to Food Bill which will improve the condition of poor and have nots.

He said that the government was working on the plan of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi that none should face pangs of hunger.

“The proposed bill was yet another revolutionary measure after the Right To Work and Right to Information Acts,” he told a public meeting, virtually launching ruling Congress' campaign for the assembly polls due in May.

The meeting was organised by the DPPC to highlight the achievements of the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre and in the Union Territory.

The Bill was keeping the next generation in mind and was not aimed at the next elections, he said. "The welfare of the next generation is governing the underlying spirit of the Right to Food legislation," he said.

The Central Government was implementing the Mahatma Gandhi Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme at an investment of Rs 40,000 crores annually, he said adding this was a "revolutionary measure" evolved by Sonia Gandhi to ensure that there was guaranteed job for the rural folk.
