New Delhi: SP and BSP on Tuesday staged a walk
out from the Lok Sabha shortly before the voting on the Lokpal
Bill tonight in protest against Government bringing a "weak"

"We had demanded a strong Lokpal. It is not strong. It is
sarkari Lokpal. There is no meaning to it. It was brought in
a hurry and under Anna Hazare`s pressure," SP supremo Mulayam
Singh Yadav told reporters here.

Asked why did he not protest against the bill in the
House by voting against it, Yadav said, "We don`t want to
support BJP."

BSP leader Dara Singh Chauhan said the party MPs walked
out of the House in protest against Government`s refusal to
accept their demand of bringing the CBI under Lokpal.
