New Delhi: The Parliamentary Standing
Committee going into the Lokpal Bill will complete its work
"soon", its chairman Abhishek Manu Singhvi said on Sunday.

"The speed and the direction of the committee are nothing
short of a miracle. We are hoping to complete our work soon
and fast but it is unfair to suggest timelines and
deadlines," Singhvi said.

The committee has been given three months time till
December seven to prepare its report.

The committee, however, was not in operation for almost a
month as the term of the earlier committee ended and
reconstitution took time.

Team Anna had first appeared before the committee in
August this year after Anna Hazare`s 13-day fast that month
demanding that the Jan Lokpal Bill be passed in the Monsoon
Session of Parliament.
