New Delhi: Congress has accused BJP of
"non-seriousness" on Lokpal bill issue and of backing the
"threat" by Team Anna Hazare to embarass the government.
The editorial in the latest issue of the party
mouthpiece `Congress Sandesh` says "making levity of the
contents of the Bill shows non-seriousness of BJP which
considers dancing on the Samadhi."
It notes "the threat in the name of the civil society for
the demolition of the established norms of governance, holding
to ransom the government by organising fast and satyagrah, to
enforce the diktats of a few known for anti-Congressism and
known allegiance to opposition parties, using the forum of
Anna Hazare, who is fully backed by BJP, to embarass the
government is very disturbing."
The editorial says the matter of what all should be
covered by the Bill and how the Lokpal is to be appointed
would be left to the collective wisdom of Parliament.
