BJP leader Varun Gandhi is expected to introduce Team Anna's draft Jan Lokpal Bill in the Lok Sabha during private members' business on Friday.

Earlier this week, Gandhi had said he plans to introduce Anna Hazare's Jan Lokpal bill as a Private Member's Bill in Parliament.

Interestingly, the revised list of business of the Lok Sabha states that BJP member D V Sadananda Gowda is scheduled to introduce in the Lok Sabha a Constitution (Amendment) Bill to make changes to the Eight Schedule.

Gowda, a member of the Lok Sabha, was appointed Chief Minister of Karnataka recently. He is yet to resign as member of the Lower House.

The Rules of Procedure of Lok Sabha state that a member who wants to introduce a Bill has to give prior notice to the Secretariat.

"The period of notice for introduction of a Bill is one month unless the Speaker allows introduction at a shorter notice," the rules state.

The notice is to be accompanied by a copy of the Bill and an explanatory Statement of Objects and Reasons.
