Of all the bills tabled in the Parliamnet, he said, Food Security Bill was the most important. "I hope Parliament allows us to convert the ordinance into a bill," he added.

On the issue of suspension of IAS oficer Durga Shakti Nagpal by the Uttar Pradesh government, he said the rules will be followed. "We are in touch with the state government to get all the details."
