New Delhi: Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) leader Sitaram Yechury on Wednesday lashed out at the Congress-led UPA Government for the ongoing drama with regard to the ordinance on convicted parliamentarian.
"This ordinance in the first place should not have been brought about at all. The matter is under consideration of Parliament. A draft bill has gone to the Standing Committee. Let it come, let it be properly debated. Why this hurry for an ordinance? And, this is something we said was completely wrong," said Yechury.
"So, we are glad that it is now being withdrawn. And, it was unnecessary for the Congress to go through this entire fiasco," he added.
