CPI-M hails ordinance withdrawal

New Delhi, Oct 2 : CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury Wednesday said he was glad the ordinance that proposes not to disqualify convicted lawmakers was likely to be withdrawn.

"Why this hurry for an ordinance? This is what we said was completely wrong. So we are glad it is likely to be withdrawn. It was unnecessary for the Congress to go through this entire fiasco," he said.

Yechury said the Communist Party of India-Marxist opposed the ordinance, whose fate got sealed after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi trashed it publicly.
