New Delhi, Aug 20 (IANS) As Team Anna continues with its agitation, a parliamentary standing committee Saturday invited public suggestions on the Lokpal Bill.

The parliamentary standing committee on personnel, public grievances, law and justice, which is to suggest amendments to the Lokpal Bill, Saturday published advertisements in leading newspapers, demanding suggestions on the bill.

“The committee has decided to invite memoranda containing views/suggestions from individuals, organisations interested in the subject matter of the bill and also hear select oral evidence on the subject matter of the bill,” the advertisement said.

The step is being seen as an attempt to counter the agitating activists who have claimed that public opinion is against the Lokpal Bill introduced by the government.

A time limit of 15 days starting Saturday has been given to send suggestions.
