Lokpal bill in monsoon session if panel reports early: BansalAugust 3rd, 2012 - 11:12 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 3 (IANS) The Lokpal Bill can be taken up in the monsoon session only if the select committee looking into the mesure gives its recommendation much before the stipulated time, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal said Friday.
Stressing that the government was committed to get the bill passed, Bansal told reporters here that if the Rajya Sabha’s select committee, which has been asked to give its recommendations by the first day of the session’s last week, gives them by the middle of the session, it may be possible to bring the bill in the session.
The monsoon session starts Aug 8 and ends Sep 7.
If the report is given on the stipulated date, it will be difficult for government to “finish deliberations in four days”, said Bansal.
He said bills which were ready will be taken up in the session and added that the government was willing to discuss all issues.
The Lokpal bill has been passed by Lok Sabha. However, if government agrees to amendments based on recommendations of select committee, it would bring the bill again to the Lok Sabha for passage.
