Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia on Monday said the panel and the government had come to a consensus on the issue of defining people below the poverty line, which had triggered strong opposition from activists.

“We have reached a consensus over the issue. He (Ramesh) would be joining me to address a press conference, where we will outline the agreement,” Singh told reporters here after meeting the Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh.
