Joint Statement on Jan Lokpal Bill
"At a time when the whole country is bleeding with corruption, enactment of a strong and effective anti corruption law is very critical. Jan Lokpal Bill drafted by civil society, if enacted, could go a long way in checking corruption. We sincerely urge the government to take immediate steps to enact this law. If this law is brought in parliament, our party will fully support it.
Anna Hazare, a 78 year old social activist has announced an indefinite fast from 5th April if the government doesn’t take concrete steps to enact this law. We sincerely urge the government to take all steps necessary to prevent Anna from going on indefinite fast.
The Govt. should set up a joint committee of citizens and Govt. to draft the Lokpal Bill.”
