A Discussion on
DRAFT NATIONAL FOOD SECURITY BILL
New Delhi, December 20, 2011
CUTS International and Parliamentarian Forum on Human Rights for
Global Development (PFHRGD) jointly organised Hon?ble
Parliamentarians meeting at New Delhi, on December 20, 2011. The
meeting brought together parliamentarians, economists, media
etc., on a common platform to discuss and provide their
views/comments on the Draft National Food Security Bill.
While PARFORE is an
initiative of CUTS International to bring Members of Parliament
(MPs), cutting across party lines, on a single platform to
deliberate on the core economic policy issues that are relevant
for reforms, PFHRGD is a platform for Members of Parliament
(MPs), cutting cross party lines, and catering for the need to
discuss and act on human rights violations in the world on
general and in India specifically.
The meeting was
attended by parliamentarians representing both the houses, Lok
Sabha as well as Rajya Sabha. Apart from parliamentarians,
select media representatives were also present in the meeting.
