Vadra dominates all-party meet as UPA hopes for consensus on Food Bill

New Delhi: The Robert Vadra land deals issue dominated the all-party meeting on Tuesday. Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said that the government should allow the Opposition to raise the issue in the House.

She also said that other critical issues should also be discussed in Parliament. The Left also slammed the government saying there's no point in holding such meetings if the House cannot function.

"It was a very exhaustive all-party meeting in which all parties have stated their intent to run the House peacefully and without any disruption," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath said.

The all-party meeting came as both Houses of Parliament remained stalled with major Bills pending. The government is hoping to pass the Food Security Bill soon. IT has also tabled the RTI Amendment Bill in the House.
