Minister Arjun Munda has been serious to tackle corruption and
started initiative in this regard."
"The bill will be effective and strong. It will be
almost on the line of the bill produced by Uttarakhand
government," Goswami said.

Lambasting the UPA government and its ally Jharkhand
Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik) (JVM) for their stand over Jan
Lokpal bill in Rajya Sabha recently, Goswami asked why JVM did
not bring in any amendment in Lok Sabha on the issue and voted
in favour of the bill produced by Congress.
