Cong refuses to comment on Govt-civil society differences
New Delhi: Congress on Monday refused to comment
on the confrontation between civil society representatives and
the government on the issue of bringing the Prime Minister and
higher judiciary under the Lokpal purview.
"I am not privy to the discussions and debates in the
drafting committee of the bill," was the stock response of
party spokesman Manish Tewari to a host of questions by
reporters on the issue.
After the meeting of the committee, Anna Hazare, one of
the members of the committee, who is spearheading the campaign
for a strong and effective Lokpal Bill, said he was not
hopeful of the government meeting its deadline of June 30 for
drafting the proposed legislation.
