Ordinance row: Hope you will understand strength of my conviction, Rahul Gandhi tells PM in letter
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."
