Govt Hopeful Anna Breaks His Fast

BeyondHeadlines Staff Reporter

New Delhi: With the government assuring to debate a resolution in Parliament on the Jan Lokpal Bill on Friday, Team Anna on Thursday night expressed the hope it was “clear enough” to enable the social activist to end his fast.

“We hope it (the resolution) is clear enough to enable Anna ji to end his fast,” Anna Hazare’s associate Prashant Bhushan told reporters here.

Another associate Kiran Bedi, meanwhile, said if the resolution was passed by Parliament and if the three sticky points between the government and the civil society on the Jan Lokpal Bill is resolved, Hazare may be convinced to give up his hunger strike.

The government and Team Anna differ on issues relating to bringing the lower bureaucracy under the purview of the Lokpal, appointing Lokayuktas in each state to be under the Lokpal and formulate a citizen’s charter for government offices.
