New Delhi: Grappling with Anna Hazare`s
fast, Congress leadership is expected to interact with party
MPs on the issue on Thursday.

A meeting of Congress Parliamentary Party is being
convened at a time when there are growing concerns among the
party MPs over the fallout of Hazare`s anti-corruption
agitation in their constituencies.

Young MPs like Sandeep Dikshit, Priya Dutt, Sanjya
Nirupam, Naveen Jindal and others have voiced their concern
over the issue. While Dikshit had dubbed Hazare`s arrest a
"wrong" move, Dutt has found fault with the government`s
Lokpal bill dubbing it as "weak".

Party MP from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh Praveen Singh
Aron has already submitted a copy of Hazare`s Jan Lokpal Bill
before the Standing Committee headed by Abhishek Singhvi,
which is examining the Jan Lokpal Bill.

"Tomorrow, there is all-party meeting. A day after, a
meeting of Congress members of Parliament is perhaps being
called. This is how we gather inputs, discuss and express our
concerns," Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni
told reporters outside Parliament.
