1.10. The Proposed Measures Supported by a Political Party and no Political Party Objected to it.-
It is worth mentioning that no political party had objected to the accompanying measure or to any of its provisions. Only President of the Janata Dal has given specific comments of his party in support of the proposed legislation as under:-
"The need for the legislation is well accepted by all. The proposed legislation may require Members of the Union Council of Ministers as well as MPs to file their statements of assets and liabilities as also of their relatives and associates to the Speaker/Chairman of the House to which they belong. The term relatives and associates defined in Explanations 1 and 2 in section 2 of the Bill appears adequate."
