The government is planning to bring the controversial anti-communal violence bill in the winter session of parliament, informed sources said Monday.

The core group of the Congress, headed by party chief Sonia Gandhi, met and discussed the legislation. The meeting was attended by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Defence Minister A.K. Antony, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram and Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde, sources said.

"The communal violence bill has to be approved by the cabinet. Once that happens, then we will see," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath told reporters, when asked if the bill would be introduced in the ongoing winter session of parliament.

This session is scheduled to end Dec 20, but could be extended as the government is keen to pass the Lokpal bill.
