The concern over a controversial ordinance that seeks to save convicted lawmakers from immediate disqualification Thursday reached Rashtrapati Bhavan with BJP leaders urging President Pranab Mukherjee not to sign it and some Congress leaders also expressing their reservations saying it could erode public faith in democracy.

The president has called some ministers for consultations over it. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader LK Advani, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley and Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj gave President Mukherjee a memorandum detailing their party’s objections to the ordinance. Congress leaders Anil Shastri and union Minister of State for IT and Communications Milind Deora voiced their concern over the ordinance.
