The controversial Land Ordinance was tabled in the Lok Sabha on Monday by Union Minister of State for Skill Development Rajiv Pratap Rudy. The Parliament had earlier witnessed an uproar by the opposition leaders even before the ordinance was tabled.

"I don’t understand, what the opposition is protesting about when the Bill hasn't even been tabled yet?" said Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.

Meanwhile, following an uproar by the opposition in the Lok Sabha, Minister of State for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Giriraj Singh on Monday expressed regret for his remarks on Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

"I express regret, if anyone has been hurt by my statement. I didn't mean to insult anyone. My purpose was not to offend anyone," Singh said in the Lok Sabha. His comments came after the opposition aggressively demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi's apology over the issue, with Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia demanding that Singh be sacked for his remarks.
