Leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Communist Party of India-Marxist, Communist Party of India, Janata Dal-United, Akali Dal, Telugu Desam Party and Biju Janata Dal participated in the public debate on Lokpal Bill on Sunday at Jantar Mantar where social activist Anna Hazare was sitting on dharna protesting against Parliamentary panel's report.

 

Most of the leaders concurred with Hazare's demands for inclusion of Prime Minister, lower bureaucracy and CBI's anti-corruption wing under Lokpal. However, they did not favour bringing higher judiciary under the ombudsman and argued for a separate mechanism to check corruption in it.

In the subsequent slides, we bring you a round-up of political parties' stand on main issues concerning the Lokpal.
