Yechury on Wednesday said they "seem to know more" than what
Parliament does about the legislation.
"We do not know what the proposals (Lokpal Bill) are.
Team Anna seems to know more than Parliament does. In that
case, it is a very bad sign for democracy," Yechury told

wants to bring. Let them bring the Bill to House then we will
comment," he said.
