Rahul Gandhi on Friday met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh apparently to discuss the Lokpal issue.

Mr. Gandhi held a 30-minute meeting with Singh at the Prime Minister’s 7, Race Course Road residence here.

The meeting comes as the government is set to hold a comprehensive debate on all versions of the Lokpal Bill draft in Parliament.

The AICC General Secretary had said yesterday that he was concerned over the logjam in the wake of Mr. Hazare’s agitation against corruption.

“Of course I am concerned,” he had said when asked whether he is concerned about the stand off on the Lokpal issue and Mr. Hazare’s refusal to end the fast.
