There is one more twist to the tale-this time, BJP has insisted that the Bill is not diluted and that the key recommendations of a select committee, while redrafting the Bill, be accepted.
Senior BJP Arun Jaitley was found saying,"We won't allow the government to subvert the select committee report." Union Minister, V Narayanswamy, however said in response, "Let the house decide. We have an open mind."
Among the key recommendations include transferring an investigating officer only on the clearance provided by the Lokpal and arresting an errant official without any warrant.
"We will see whether the government brings the Lokpal or joke-pal," Anna said.
