| December 28,2011 11:54 am IST
The Congress-led UPA government faces a litmus test in getting the controversial Lokpal Bill passed in the Rajya Sabha after it was approved with a voice vote following a day-long debate in Parliament yesterday.
In an interesting turn of events, the government has now decided to introduce the Lokpal Bill in the Upper House tomorrow, which was earlier scheduled to be tabled today.
Confirming the development, MoS in PMO, V Narayanasamy said, “The Lokpal Bill will be tabled in the Rajya Sabha tomorrow. The Congress party is concerned about the fate of the bill and is determined to get the same passed in the Upper House.”
Do you think that government’s Lokpal Bill will reduce corruption?
