The Congress has declined to participate in a ‘Maha-debate' at the venue of the fast, expressing its difficulty in outlining its views before examining the final draft of the Bill. Replying to the invitation extended to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said: “A debate at this stage outside Parliament might be premature.”
