It was a marathon session for both Lok Sabha as well as Rajya Sabha. Both of the sabhas discussed for hours on the statement submitted by the Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on the Lok Pal Bill and suggestions by Anna Hazare.
The discussion was very interesting.
At the end of the discussion in both the houses Pranab Mukherjee finalised the discussion and agreed to the main three demands of Anna Hazare, framing a citizen charter, bringing the lower government officials in the ambit of the Lok Pal Bill and also forming Lokayuktas in all states.
Anna Hazare stated that he had succeeded half way and has declared to end his fast tomorrow.
It has been a fight against the reluctancy of the government to bring a strong Lok Pal. And the civil society has succeeded. But unless the bill is adopted nobody can predict what will happen. So far so good.
