Having won over the Left parties support for the Patents Bill, Congress took more potshots at BJP saying that although the NDA government had drafted the original Bill, the present Bill was an improved version.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Tuesday, Congress spokesman Anand Sharma said, The original Patents Bill was drafted by the NDA government. With the UPA government having provided improved versions of the original draft, BJP is opposing the Bill only because it has decided to take up the path of confrontation. He added that the BJP was opposing the Bill just for the sake of opposition.
