Kiran Bedi against Anna Hazare over revised Lokpal Bill
New Delhi: Differences have been emerged between former IPS officer Kiran Bedi, anti-crusader Anna Hazare and Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal over the revised Lokpal Bill.

The cabinet on Thursday approved amendments to the Lokpal bill suggested by a select committee of the Rajya Sabha. While Hazare and Kejriwal rejected the revised Lokpal, Bedi has backed the amended anti-graft legislation.

"The revised Lokpal Bill draft meets most of our concerns," said Bedi to a news channel.

Bedi also posted her reaction on Twitter, "It will do us no harm if we begin with proposed Lokpal and we keep improving it as we go along!Being very high powered it will carry weight!"

Rejecting the new draft of the Lokpal Bill with amendments proposed by the central government, Anna said that he would continue his fight for the Jan Lokpal Bill.

"The proposed new draft of the Lokpal Bill is useless. We will continue our fight for the Jan Lokpal Bill and force the government to pass it," said Hazare.

Hazare added that the proposed bill would not help fight corruption. "Such a bill will not benefit the people," he said.

Kejriwal also criticised the UPA government for not coming out with a strong Lokpal Bill, asserting that the proposed law would not check corruption.

"Why should you have any Lokpal? If an agency is created which will not stop corruption, will lead to increased corruption and provide protection to ministers, then what is the point," he said.

"We were not interested in just the word Lokpal. You can name it anything. The government has not done a favour to the people of the country (by the bill). It is the government's constitutional duty to give a corruption-free regime," he added.

"Some people are saying they are happy that a beginning has been made, but has the government done us a favour?" asked Kejriwal, saying the people of the country were suffering due to corruption and price rise.

Not only this, main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) also slammed the Congress-led UPA government for weak Lokpal Bill.
