The talk of convening the monsoon session of Parliament in early July for extending President’s rule in Jharkhand is gaining ground, an occasion that can be utilised for pushing through the ambitious food bill.

While there has been no official word on the issue, the Central rule in Jharkhand is expiring on July 18 and the government will have to act if it wants to extend it for another six months.

Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Monday held consultations with top party leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, A K Antony, Sushil Kumar Shinde and Jairam Ramesh on the way forward in Jharkhand.

PCC President Sukdev Bhagat, CLP leader Rajendra Prasad Singh and AICC in-charge Shakeel Ahmed were also present at the meeting.
