Pass Jan Lokpal Bill by Aug 30: Team Anna



New Delhi: As Prime Minister Manmohan Singh spoke about the need for a reasoned debate on Lokpal Bill, Team Anna Monday said the government should ensure passage of the Jan Lokpal Bill by August 30.

"The Prime Minister should ensure passage of Jan Lokpal Bill and then only the intention of what he said could come true," activist Kiran Bedi said referring to Singh's remarks on corruption and its eradication.

She said the government should get the Bill passed in Parliament by August 30, the deadline set by fasting Anna Hazare.

"Your bill is very weak. Please understand that....You take five minutes to clear a bill if it is about your salary. Get the Jan Lokpal Bill passed. Still there are five-six days left," she said.
