The government on Friday left open the possibility of giving effect to Rahul Gandhi’s pet six anti-graft legislations through ordinances after the Opposition parties did not agree to extend the current Parliament session.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath responded by stating, “We will discuss the matter” when asked by reporters if the government would take the ordinance route on the bills.
He also indicated that the government would consider what views President Pranab Mukherjee may have in regard to promulgation of ordinances.

“We will discuss the matter…. what are the views of the President…. Because the country needs the anti- corruption legislations which are pending…. But despite all my efforts, the political parties did not agree to extend the session,” Kamal Nath said.
Meanwhile, BSP chief Mayawati said, “though we support the bills, they should have come much earlier. Now the government, which itself is involved in corruption, is trying to change its image through the bills”.
The extended Winter Session had started on February five.
Nath said that despite his attempts to persuade them, the political parties did not agree to extend to the session.
“They have not agreed despite the fact that these bills have been pending since 2011, 2012, 2013 and have gone through standing committees. It is not that these bills have come in the last two, three months. So, very unhappily, the government has no choice but to adjourn the House sine die,” he said.
