The long-awaited Lokpal Bill that seeks to ensure probity in public life is expected to see the light of the day and would be put up before the Union Cabinet soon, Law Minister Veerappa Moily said on Saturday.

“The Lokpal Bill is going to come up before the Cabinet. The Bill is going to see the light of the day,” Mr. Moily said addressing the inaugural session of a two-day All India Lokayukta and Up Lokayukta Conferences here.

The institution of Lokpal or ombudsman is expected to look into the irregularities by government officials and ministers. The Lokpal bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha many times but could never be passed.

Efforts were underway to transform the governance, he said, adding politicians should reform themselves.

He said the Right to Information (RTI) was a great step to deal with corruption adding that more awareness should be created about it.
