Loksabha begins debate on Lokpal Bill

New Delhi: The eight-hour long extraordinary debate on the Lokpal issue Saturday ended with Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee expressing "a broad sense of the house" resolution that includes an in-principle acceptance of three key demands of Anna Hazare by the Lok Sabha.

There was, however, neither any resolution nor a voice vote that was expected at the end of the debate, just desk-thumping by members drawn from all parties.

These included an agreement on the citizens' charter, the bringing of the lower bureaucracy under the Lokpal and the setting up of Lokayuktas in the state.

Mukherjee, also leader of the house, made it clear that the outcome of the proceedings will be submitted to the parliamentary standing committee examining the Lokpal bill. The standing committee will bring a revised legislation to the house, he said.
