Bangalore: The joint committee to draft the Lokpal Bill would meet on May 2 to discuss all aspects of the much awaited legislation, Law Minister M Veerappa Moily on Saturday said.

Expressing his reluctance to get into a debate over the issue, he said, "Everything that had to be said had already been said. The 10-member joint committee is meeting on May 2 to discuss all aspects of the bill and take an overview."

He was interacting with the media on the sidelines of a function organised by Advocates Association of Bangalore (AAB)

Earlier, he said the proposed Legal Practitioners Bill which is "for the good of advocates" was before the Cabinet.

"We will discuss the bill threadbare with the laywers and then take a decision on it".
