New Delhi, Sept 30: The Congress on Monday said the ordinance meant to overrule a Supreme Court ruling on disqualifying MPs and state legislators convicted of crime was not meant to save RJD leader Lalu Prasad.

"To think that the ordinance was brought to save a particular person is wrong," said Alvi.

The quantum of punishment in the fodder scam case will be announced Thursday.
