Amid a large number of amendments from the opposition, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath merely said that the government is willing to accept those amendments which are ‘workable’.
    
"We are looking at this situation that if it is an amendment which is workable, the government will move that amendment. It will come in as an official amendment," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath told reporters outside Parliament House when asked about 200-odd amendments.
    
Emerging from a meeting convened by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of ministers related to the rollout and implementation of the food security law, Nath also said Speaker Meira Kumar will take a decision on Monday morning on what should be done about the protests by TDP MPs on Telangana issue.
    
Opposition leaders have been insisting that no bill should be passed in the din and that it wanted to participate in the discussion on the Food Bill.
    
The meeting convened by the Prime Minister was attended by Food Minister KV Thomas, Women and Child Development Minister Krishna Tirath, Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh, HRD Minister MM Pallam Raju and Finance Minister P Chidambaram. The meeting discussed the various amendments moved by the parties.
    
"We discussed the various amendments moved by the parties as to which all can be accepted so that the bill can be passed easily," Nath said adding no politics should be involved in the measure.
