Patna: Undeterred by Team Anna's criticism of the draft Lokayukta bill, Nitish Kumar government appeared firm to table the proposed bill during winter session of the two houses of Bihar legislature from December two, official sources said on Thursday.

"A three-member ministerial team led by Deputy Chief Minister S K Modi is working on the proposed draft. After being fine-tuned, it will be sent to the chief minister for vetting," official sources said.

The chief minister has called an all-party meeting here on November 26 to seek opinions from the opposition parties on the draft which has also been made public for seeking opinion.

"After giving a final shape to the bill to be examined by the cabinet, it would be tabled during the winter session of the state legislature," they said.

Team Anna had criticised the draft of the proposed Lokayukta bill saying it was nowhere near to the Lokayukta bill passed by UttarAkhand.

Stung by the criticism,Nitish Kumar had said he did not not require any certificate from any individual, group or organisations and said they were free to send in their opinions or suggestions in this regard.
