New Delhi: With Anna Hazare sitting on a day-long fast for a stronger Lokpal Bill, the Congress on Sunday said the government is committed to a strong Lokpal bill but it is for the Parliament to make the law.

"The government is committed to a strong Lokpal but it is for the parliament to decide what kind of law has to be made," Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi told reporters here.

Reacting to Team Anna's charge hat the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government is not committed to a strong Lokpal, Alvi said people can have different view on things.

Large crowds gathered at the Jantar Mantar on Sunday as Hazare began his day-long fast at 11 a.m. in the capital.
