New Delhi: UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi-led National Advisory Council (NAC) will not go into the Lokpal Bill.

The NAC said that its Working Group on Transparency, Accountancy and Governance will not be dealing with this subject "for the present in order to avoid duplicacy."

A decision to this effect has been taken "in view of the constitution of the Joint Committee comprising of Group of Ministers (GoM) and Civil Society representatives for drafting of Lokpal Bill in a time bound manner by the Government", the NAC said in a press release.

However, the Working Group will continue to deliberate upon reforms for bringing accountability and transparency in governance, it said.
