New Delhi: Going the extra mile to meet social activist Anna Hazare’s major demand, the government will have a discussion in the Lok Sabha (lower house of Parliament) on Friday about the various versions of the Lokpal (anti-corruption) Bill, including the one brought out by Team Anna, reports PTI.

The discussion will be held under Rule 184 which entails voting, sources said last night.

A motion will be brought to facilitate a combined discussion on the Lokpal Bill, the Jan Lokpal Bill brought out by Anna Hazare as also the drafts prepared by activist Aruna Roy and Jai Prakash Narain, sources said.

While the exact wording of the motion is not immediately known, sources said the discussion could take place on the Jan Lokpal Bill in the shape of a ‘document’ and its salient features, after which the records of the debate are expected to be sent to the Parliamentary Standing Committee examining the Lokpal Bill.

A decision in this regard was reached during hectic parleys within the government and discussions held by finance minister Pranab Mukherjee with parliamentary affairs minister Pawan Bansal and law minister Salman Khurshid.
