10:30 UPA determined to pass the Food Bill on 20 August, Rajiv Gandhi’s birth anniversary. Earlier Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath said it would accept all “workable” amendments to the bill

The Food Security Bill, expected to be a game-changer for the ruling Congress ahead of five assembly polls this year-end and the 2014 general elections, aims to provide subsidised foodgrain at prices much below the market rate to around 67 percent of India’s 1.2 billion people; the bill would thus benefit about 800 million people
