Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi after his presser on Friday wrote to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, regarding his views on the ordinance pushed by the Government.
The ordinance overturns a Supreme Court order that elected representatives convicted and sentenced to over two years in prison will be disqualified immediately.
Following is the communication by Mr Gandhi to the PM:
"I realize that what I feel about the Ordinance is not in harmony with the Cabinet decision and the Core Group's view. I also know it would be exploited by our political opponents. You know that I have the highest respect for you and I look up to you for your wisdom. I have nothing but the greatest admiration for the manner in which you are providing leadership in extremely difficult circumstances. I hope you will understand the strength of my own conviction about this very controversial issue."
