Suratgarh (Rajasthan), June 20 (ANI): UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi today criticized the opposition parties for creating hurdles in passing of the Food Security Bill, and accused them of creating instability in the country to grab power at any cost.
Gandhi, who was addressing a rally here, said these kind of political forces have nothing to do with progress
"They are only eyeing the chair and they want it at any cost. There is a need to be vigilant against such powers," she said.
The Congress also hit out at the BJP, and accused it of creating hurdles in the passing of the Food Security bill.
"We (UPA) want that no one sleeps hungry. For that we wanted to bring a bill on food security but our 'virodhi' (rival) created hurdles. Had the opposition allowed the bill in Parliament, we would have passed the Food Security Act long ago," she said.
She further charged the opposition parties of opposing everything that the ruling Congress Party wants to initiate and do.
The UPA chairperson, who was speaking after laying the foundation stone of two super critical power units of 660 MW each at Suratgarh Power Station, said 'whenever there is instability, it affects progress and development and indirectly aggravates the woes of the poor'. (ANI)
