New Delhi: Advising Anna Hazare to be
patient on the Lokpal Bill issue, RJD supremo Lalu Prasad
Yadav on Tuesday said Parliament is supreme and its panel is seized
with the matter.

"We have seen Anna`s Lokpal draft and we have told him
that we will examine it. Anna should have patience," Yadav
told reporters outside Parliament.

The draft prepared by Anna Hazare on Jan Lokpal bill is
currently being examined by the Standing Committee on Law and
Justice and Personnel of which Yadav is a member.

Asked whether he felt that RSS was behind Hazare, Yadav
answered in the affirmative. "Yes, it is."

"Anna Hazare does not have have any organisation. There
must be some organisations which are behind him," he said.

However, the Rashtriya Janata Dal MP said, "Everyone has
the right to protest in a parliamentary democracy. But
Parliament is supreme and the Standing Committee of Parliament
is looking into the issue. We are all against corruption."

Yadav also advised Hazare not to challenge the supremacy
of the Parliament.

"Laws are formed through the Parliament and no one should
challenge its supremacy," he said.

On adjournment of Parliament, Lalu said the smaller
parties also want to participate in the debate on Hazare
issue.

"The Congress and BJP are not letting other parties to
speak over the issue (on Anna Hazare). We want to hold a
debate where everyone get a chance to speak...Let all the
parties get an opportunity to talk and only then the
Government should give its reply," Lalu said.
