Ministers hold meeting to redraft food bill -Taking the first step towards fixing the shortcomings of the proposed food security bill, the UPA government's empowered group of ministers (EGoM) on Monday asked the Planning Commission to decide precisely how many poor people there were in India -- those who would be the largest beneficiaries of the landmark law. The draft legislation was recalled last week after the Congress leadership found it wanting in some respects. Simultaneously, it has asked the food ministry to study how 22 other countries enacted and put into practice similar food-for-all laws.
