NCP president Sharad Pawar on Friday said
his party would "fully support" the proposed Lokpal Bill
while safeguarding the power of the Parliament.

"NCP will fully support the Lokpal Bill, (while)
safeguarding the powers of Parliament, to eliminate the
disease of corruption", he said addressing a party meeting
here.

Pawar said in order to enact the Lokpal Act, the
Government had shown willingness to accommodate "outsiders on
the drafting committee".

The menace of corruption disturbed the society and there
was a need to frame a legislation that would rein in the
people`s representatives, he added.
