The UPA government utterly failed to pass the Lok Pal Bill in the Rajya Sabha yesterday. Had they accepted the modifications suggested by the opposition to make the weak bill as a strong bill, it could have been adopted by majority in Rajya Sabha. Instead the government cleverly manipulated the time and ensured that no voting takes place since they are in minority. The Rajya Sabha has adjourned sine die. The future of the bill is not clear. It seems that the same will have to be presented in the Rajya Sabha again.
It is now very clear that the UPA government is against a strong Lok Pal Bill. The people will have to put pressure on the UPA government.
