Chidambaram, who was accompanied by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath and Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari, said the government's "hand was firmly on the wheel."

He asserted that each bill "stands on its own merit and will be passed on its own merit."

"We are a stable government. No one is questioning our stability. There is no instability," Chidambaram said.
