New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party leader Mayank Gandhi on Saturday hit back at critics who accused the party of delaying Jan Lokpal Bill and putting it into cold storage.
Gandhi took to social-networking site Twitter and revealed that the AAP-led Delhi government will soon table the much-awaited Jan Lokpal Bill in Delhi Assembly.
“I've sympathies with those who criticised us for not bringing Jan Lokpal Bill. The Bill will be introduced soon. They should now find other issues to attack us,” he wrote.
जो आलोचक हमें जनलोकपाल नहीं लाने की निंदा करते थे उन्हें मेरी हमदर्दी। कुछ दिनों में जनलोकपाल आ रहा है। अब और कुछ ढूंढो।

In February 2014, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had resigned after he had been prevented from tabling his pet Jan Lokpal bill in the Assembly in the face of stiff opposition from both Congress and BJP.
He had then accused both the BJP and Congress of joining hands to defeat the Bill.
