CPI (M) general secretary Prakash Karat on Wednesday said that the UPA government’s move to promulgate ordinances before the announcement of the Lok Sabha elections was ‘undemocratic’.
Addressing a party rally in Kozhikode, Karat said that the Left would oppose the move to bring in ordinances. “We are not going to allow the ordinance raj,” he said.
Karat said that the only reason the Congress wanted to bring the ordinances is to fight against corruption.
He said if Congress was genuine in fighting corruption, they should have presented the bills in the Parliament. “If the government was so keen then they should have extended the Parliament session for three to four days more to allow a discussion on the Bills”, Karat said.
“They should wait until the next Parliament session to bring in the new law. The CPI (M) and the Left would oppose this undemocratic move to promulgate ordinances,” said Karat.
