Kolkata: Union Finance Minister Pranab
Mukherjee on Sunday described as hypothetical a question on
bringing ordinance "right now" to tackle corruption and said
no ordinance has been issued yet.

"You people are asking a question which is totally
hypothetical. There is no ordinance right now," Mukherjee told
reporters responding to a question after a state Congress
party meeting here.

"Therefore let the ordinance come. Some newspapers have
made some stories that there may be an ordinance. No ordinance
has yet been issued. I do not know if in my absence on Sunday
and Saturday it has been issued. Otherwise, to my knowledge up
to Friday, no ordinance was issued," he said.
