"They (government) are trying to bring legislation, but before that, they should ensure there is consensus, and after that, they should take a decision and introduce the bill in both houses of Parliament," she said.
Samajwadi party leader Naresh Agarwal said Communal Violence Bill will curb state rights, and therefore, many states have been opposing it.
National Congress Party (NCP) leader Tariq Anwar said not introducing the Communal Violence Bill won't make sense.
"Though, there can be a discussion on it, in which parties opposing the introduction of this bill can put their points forward, as to why they think it should not be introduced," said Anwar.
"The bill will be beneficial in reducing communal violence. It is important for the introduction of any bill to have the consent of all the parties but not introducing the bill at all, just because a few parties are opposing it does not make sense," he added.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Uma Bharti said India does not require a Communal Violence Bill.
"There is no requirement for a Communal Violence Bill in this country. We have all kinds of forces to deal with such issues. It is the politicians who need to control themselves, as usually, it is their greed for votes which create communal violence," said Bharti.
