"At no point did Amar Singh support the Ordinance," he said.

Reading Singh's letter to Bhardwaj, he said: "Only three organisations which require retrospective amendments, if you deem fit, are the chairperson of the UP Development Council, state Film Development Corporation and the state Irrigation and Flood Control Commission."
