Government denies of delaying the Lokpal bill

Lokpal Bill The Government denied of allegations that it is unnecessarily delaying the Lokpal bill to be drafted. But the Home Minister P Chidambaram said the government is not causing any delay but have widened the consultations so that it can take the views of every one who may come within the ambit of the bill. He said there are differences even within the members representing the civil society regarding the bill. Kapil Sibal addressing the same issue said that no one including the media and civil society should be questioning the intentions of the government as it would only cause more friction in completing the task of drafting the bill. The last meeting on the bill ended up with no decision made as the government was very critical about including the Prime Minister in the bill which it claims would make him dysfunctional.
