The veteran leader, a former Union minister, said there was no need to take extreme action on this and there was no ground to oppose the amendment.

The government had on Friday introduced the bill in the Lok Sabha despite opposition to replace a May 28 ordinance to change a clause in the TRAI Act, which would have stopped Mishra from taking up the government post following retirement.
Mishra, former chairman of the TRAI, joined the prime minister's office the day of the promulgation of the ordinance and the bill was brought to give his appointment the much-needed legal backing.
