Reject govt’s Lokpal Bill: Kejriwal to Parliament
Mumbai: Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday appealed to Parliament to reject government’s Lokpal Bill, which he dubbed as “weak”.
Kejriwal further asked Parliament to pass the Jan Lokpal Bill.
He said the government’s bill is not aimed at curbing corruption but protecting corrupt ministers.
The anti-corruption activist said the government had cheated Anna Hazare twice, first in April and then in August, by making false promises on bringing a strong Lokpal Bill.
He asked “why did the government form the joint drafting committee when none of our demands were to be met?”
Kejriwal further said that he along with Kiran Bedi have appealed to Hazare to go ahead with his protest but not the fast as he is not well.
