Lokpal Bill in Rajya Sabha today

The government intends to table the Lokpal Bill in the Rajya Sabha on Friday, although the Opposition parties have reservations about some of its provisions. The government plans to move 13 amendments to the Bill, passed by the Lok Sabha last year. The Bill has been at the centre of a national debate since social activist Anna Hazare launched an agitation over the issue in April 2011.
