"There is no question of going back on any of the ordinances. Whether it is the land ordinance, whether it is coal ordinance, whether it is the mines and mineral ordinance or whether it is e-rickshaw ordinance. All these ordinances will be pursued and then we want the Parliament to debate, discuss and decide," Naidu told reporters outside Parliament.
    
He said that these will be taken up when the Budget is over and the timing will be decided by the Business Advisory Committee.
    
Naidu said that the government as it declared on Wednesday, is "open for meaningful suggestions" but stressed "as far as the main purpose of the bill is concerned, Government intends to go ahead with the bill (to replace land ordinance)."
