New Delhi: Social activist Swami Agnivesh
Friday voiced hope that an "honourable resolution" would be
found soon to the stalemate over the Lokpal Bill issue for
which Gandhian Anna Hazare is observing a
fast-unto-death.

"High-level meetings are taking place between top
ministers," Agnivesh told reporters here.

He said the anti-corruption activists decided not to
join a meeting scheduled this morning at HRD Minister Kapil
Sibal`s residence over the issue as two of their demands were
not met.

"We are hoping that by this evening an honourable
resolution to the issue would be found," he added.

"After the high-level meeting at Prime Minister`s
residence, we hope that when we go to the meeting later, the
government will come out with a respectable solution to our
demands," he said.

Agnivesh said that a draft on their demands would be
prepared by noted lawyer Shanti Bhushan, Arvind Kejriwal and
Kiran Bedi. "It will be sent to the government and then we
will wait for the government`s response," he said.

Hazare had earlier said he was not averse to dialogue
but such discussions should take place with those who have
power to take decisions.

"When did we say no to dialogue. Dialogue
should take place with those who have power to take decisions,
whether (Congress chief) Sonia Gandhi or Prime Minister
(Manmohan Singh)," he said.
