"It is an affront to Parliament which refused to put its stamp of approval. Duplicity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi stands exposed as he had only yesterday said that his government is open to reviewing the anti-farmer Land Ordinance", party's communication department in-charge Randeep Surjewala said.

The Congress, he cited, condemns this 'sinister design' of Modi government to 'surreptitiously push through' the Land Ordinance after agreeing to get it re-examined through a Joint Committee of Parliament.

He demanded that the government should desist from the move and 'apologise to the nation for its subversive designs'. The Congress reaction came after the Union Cabinet recommended re-promulgation of the Ordinance for the third time.
