While Jaitley stated, "Lokpal fisaco was a subversion of the Parliamentary system," Advani demanded a minute probe to unearth the fiasco.

Advani, while informing about their meeting with the President, said, "We urged President that probe be ordered into Lokpal fiasco."

BJP alleges that the government manipulated the proceedings at the Upper House on Dec 29 to avoid a vote considering that they were not in majority in the Rajya Sabha. They will also express their displeasure at the way Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari conducted himself.
