Bonhomie grows between Anna and Rahul over support to Lokpal Bill

While Anna has lauded Rahul for stand on bill,the Gandhi scion has thanked him for his agitation.

As the Rajya Sabha is expected to pass the Lokpal Bill without discussion,a bonhomie is growing between anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi. Both have thanked each other for their stand on the Lokpal Bill.

Replying to Anna’s letter,Rahul has lauded his agitation in favour of the bill,saying,”We respect your role in it and we are very grateful to you for support.”

He further said,“All of us are committed to provide a competent and strongest possible Lokpal.”

This came after the anti-corruption crusader welcomed commitment of Rahul to pass Lokpal in Parliament. He,however,also expressed his desire for inclusion of the recommendations of select committee in the bill.

This came after leaders of most of the political parties agreed on Monday to extend the Lokpal Bill a helping hand.
