Lokpal: Govt deceives Anna Hazare again, Parl debate delayed

Anna Hazare and Sonia Gandhi
New Delhi, Aug 26: Government's decision to delay Parliament debate on Lokpal Bill from Aug 26 to Aug 27 disappointed Anna Hazare and India Against Corruption movement.

Manmohan Singh's government earlier on Thursday had assured Team Anna that the House will hold a debate on all versions of Lokpal Bill from Friday.

Retracting from their words, the government said that the discussion will be held on Saturday during a special Parliamentary session.

Anna Hazare has, however, vowed to continue his fast till the government passes resolution on the three disputed issues:

  • Start discussion in Parliament on introduction of state Lokayukta,
  • Start discussion on adopting Citizens" Charter,
  • Start discussion on putting lower bureaucracy under Jan Lokpal.

Now, many have started speculating whether Anna will continue his fast or will he give up showing disappointment on the government.
