A dramatic U-turn in less than 24 hours. On Wednesday, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath had told NDTV that the government should not wait for a day to make the Food Security Bill a legal right. Today, the government said it would make "one more effort" to convince the Opposition. The Prime Minister reportedly conveyed this to his colleagues at a cabinet meeting this morning, thus deferring plans to use an ordinance to provide subsidised food to nearly 70% of India's population.
