Speaking in the Rajya Sabha during the debate on the food bill, party leader Derek O'Brien said "The UPA is 'under pressure alliance' and in a hurry to pass the bill."
"This bill says the state will have to comply with whatever directions the central government gives ... This is a mockery of federalism," he argued.
O'Brien said the scheme is encouraging farmers to grow only cereals and cereals are not the solution to malnutrition.
