'UPA govt will go if Ordinance on office or profit issued'
New Delhi, Mar 22 (UNI) Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee today asserted that nobody can save the UPA government if it issued any ordinance with regard to "office of profit" issue.
Talking to newspersons after an NDA delegation handed over a memorandum to President APJ Abdul Kalam this evening, Mr Vajpayee, however, said he did not think that the Government would do so. But if any ordinance was promulgated on the issue of "Office of Profit" this government would go.
Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha L.K. Advani described the decision of the government to adjourn the Budget session of Parliament sine die as "totally undemocratic." He said the Opposition would continue to protest it and if the Government issued any ordinance, the NDA would challenge the decision in the court.
In the memorandum, the delegation of NDA leaders and MPs urged the President that he should not sign any ordinance sent to him by the Government on the issue.
