New Delhi: The draft of Lokpal Bill cleared by the Union Cabinet does not generate hope of creating a strong anti-corruption body, Samajwadi Party said on Wednesday.

"From whatever we have read in the media, it seems Anna Hazare's complaint that government has placed a tin box where people will complain and Lokpal will forward it for action, is proving to be right," SP spokesperson Mohan Singh told reporters here.

Observing that the government had assured the opposition parties on creation of a strong Lokpal, he said, "The draft Bill that has come before us, it would be difficult to expect a strong Lokpal."

Singh said SP will "move amendments" in the Bill and will work to ensure that the government accept the changes suggested by it, and take them into account while formulating the legislation.
