Lokpal meet ends on dissenting note


New Delhi: The last meeting between Gandhian Anna Hazare’s civil society representatives and the government on drafting an anti-graft Lokpal bill ended here Tuesday with the two sides agreeing that “differences exist”.

“Six sticking points remain between us. Drafts were exchanged,” Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal told reporters after the one-hour long meeting. “We agreed to disagree,” he added

Lawyer and civil society member Prashant Bhushan said the meeting was “disappointing”.
