Thank you for your letter dated August 26.
As you know, Parliament today discussed Lokpal-related issues. You will be happy to know that both Houses of Parliament have passed a resolution on the three points raised by you in the letter.

According to this resolution, Parliament has in principle agreed on the three points:
(1) citizen"s charter
(2) lower bureaucracy to be under Lokpal through an appropriate mechanism
(3) establishment of Lokayuktas in the states

Parliament has also resolved to send today"s proceedings to the department-related standing committee for its perusal while formulating its recommendations.

I hope that in view of the Parliament resolution, you will end your fast without any delay and will get back to good health. We all wish you good health.

With Best Wishes,
Manmohan Singh
