Earlier, in a related development, the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh wrote a letter to Anna Hazare saying that Jan Lokpal Bill will be presented before the Standing Committee if Lok Sabha Speaker allows so. The Prime Minister said that if Anna Hazare is keen about the time and speed of the passage of the Lokpal bill, Government will formally request the Standing Committee to fast track their deliberations. He urged Anna to break his fast and expressed concern over his health. Dr. Singh assured Anna Hazare that they are together in the fight against corruption.

After three hours of talks, Team Anna said they made it clear to the government that the official Lokpal Bill should either be withdrawn or allowed to lapse and the Jan Lokpal Bill should be introduced and passed in the current session of Parliament by extending it, if necessary.

“We have told them that it is not acceptable,” Arvind Kejriwal, a top associate of Hazare, told a gathering at Ramlila Maidan where the veteran activist’s fast entered the second week.
