The Samajwadi Party supremo today chaired a meeting of party MPs from the Lok Sabha to discuss the party's stand on the Food Security Bill.
"We will support the Bill when it is put to vote. But the party has decided to move amendments to make the scheme better and ensure that the farmers get the right price for their crops. Other amendments are on giving pulses along with rice to improve nutrition. We also want that more grains should be given per family," a SP MP present in the meeting said.
Food Minister KV Thomas and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath had met Yadav on Monday to solicit his support for the Food Security Bill.
The government is keen on passing the Bill in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday on the occasion of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's birth anniversary.
