Anna’s condition met; LS to discuss Lokpal tomorrow

New Delhi: Anna Hazare’s major demand is set to be met with the government today deciding to have a discussion in the Lok Sabha tomorrow on the Jan Lokpal Bill.

Sources said the discussion will take place on the Bill in the shape of a “document” and its salient features after which the records of the debate are expected to be sent to the Parliamentary Standing Committee examining the Lokpal Bill.

It was, however, not clear immediately whether the debate would be held under Rule 193 or Rule 184, which entails voting.

The decision in this regard was reached during hectic parleys within the government, which included Union Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh’s meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Subsequently, Singh held consultations with senior Ministerial colleagues Pranab Mukherjee and A K Antony.

The decision to hold the discussion marks meeting of a major demand of Hazare who said only then he would decide on ending his 10-day fast.
