New Delhi, Apr 7: The second meeting between telecom minister Kapil Sibal and social activist Swamy Agnivesh remained inconclusive on Thursday, Apr 7.

After addressing the meeting on the implementation of Lokpal Bill to fight against corruption in India, Mr Sibal informed that the government will hold another round meeting with the social-activists on Friday, Apr 8.

Earlier, government spokesperson Kapil Sibal stated, "We have started a channel of communication. We met last evening. We met today also. The talks have been constructive...The formalities are yet to be agreed upon. We are meeting again."

But he did not elaborate on what the formula is saying the attempt is that all are together.

"We want to deal with corruption. We want to get rid of corruption. We want the civil society to participate. We have no problem with that," he said appealing to Hazare to call off the hunger strike.

"The objective of the government and civil society is to sit together and to deal with the issue of corruption effectively through an appropriate legislation," he said.

Agnivesh, after the first meeting with Sibal, said he will inform Hazare about the outcome of the talks which he described as "positive".

"We will inform Hazare about the talks. The final decision will be his," he said.
