New Delhi: Union Minister Manish Tiwari said on Wednesday that the UPA government was sensitive to the opinion of the people and so the Union Cabinet had decided to withdraw the bill and the ordinance intended to protect convicted lawmakers.

Addressing the media in the national capital, the Congress leader confirmed that the Cabinet had decided to withdraw the bill and the ordinance which was meant to negate the Supreme Court order. "Sometimes in a democracy the concerns of the people should be taken into consideration," he said.
He also emphasised on the fact that withdrawal of the bill does not mean that the position of the Prime Minister has been undermined. "There is absolutely no question of undermining the authority of the PM," Manish Tiwari said.

Clarifying on why Congress vice president had termed the ordinance as `nonsense` and something that should be `torn and thrown away`, I&B Minister said that Rahul Gandhi spoke after he got feedback from all quarters.

He also informed the media that a motion to withdraw the bill would be initiated in Parliament at an opportune time.
