Earlier question were raised by the members as to why was the bill brought in the form of an ordinance.
Responding to all queries, Mr Puri said that if the winter Session of the Parliament had been convened, there would have been no need for an Ordinance. "If we had not brought the Ordinance and waited for this Session, authorities would have started sealing properties," he averred.
