Team Anna on Tuesday said extension of Winter Session of Parliament will be worthy only if a strong Lokpal Bill is brought with CBI out of government control.
“Extension will be worth if it is for a strong Lokpal with CBI out of government control and with Lokpal. Everything depends on the content of the bill,” activist Kiran Bedi said.
She was reacting to reports about government deciding to extend the Winter Session by three days from December 27 to facilitate the passage of the Lokpal Bill and some other key legislations.
Team Anna also asked the BJP whether it was determined on Lokpal as it was on issues of JPC probe into 2G scam and FDI in retail and cautioned the opposition party against “double speak” on the question of bringing CBI under the ombudsman.
“Is BJP as determined as it was in JPC and FDI on Lokpal? When will BJP make its stand on CBI categorical. Now that Congress’ is evident,” Ms. Bedi said.
She also warned the main opposition party that it will be a “bigger loser if it does double speak” on CBI. “People will not forgive them either,” she said.
Ms. Bedi also said that it was “frustrating to be waiting to see” what Congress does. “It changes every minute,” she added.
