Anna Hazare
New Delhi, Aug 27: 74-year-old Anna Hazare will finally heave a sigh of relief as the debate in parliament will resolve with accepting all the three demands of the veteran for a new Lokpal, said reports.

Anna had earlier said that he will not end his fast unless a resolution is passed in the Parliament accepting all his conditions for a strong Lokpal Bill.

The new draft that was prepared by the government along with Team Anna includes all the three demands put down by the Gandhian. BJP in the meeting also expressed solidarity with accepting all the points of the new Lokpal draft.

The three demands put down by Anna for a strong Lokpal include bringing all government employees, along with lower bureaucrats under the Lokpal ambit, a citizen charter to be displayed in all government departments and Lokayukta to be implemented in all states.

Meanwhile, reports also suggest that the political consensus has already been achieved and Team Anna also received written assurance from the government.

Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee will move an appeal in the Parliament at 4.30 pm on Aug 27 (today).

Anna's fast has entered its 12th day today and doctors have expressed their worry over the deteriorating health condition of the anti-corruption crusader.
