Exclamation Update: Govt has agreed to Anna Hazare's three demands: Vilasrao Deshmukh

New Delhi: A solution to the Lokpal standoff appeared near with the government having agreed to accept the three contentious demands of Team Anna. Science and Technology Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh said on Thursday: "The government has agreed to all three sticking points."

Deshmukh, one of the mediators between the government and Team Anna, said this to reporters at Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar's Iftar party in the evening.

Deshmukh also said the government would circulate the draft Lokpal bill to the states.

"It would be their (states) decision to adopt it," he said, adding that the government had also agreed to include the lower bureaucracy under the Lokpal.

Deshmukh, a former Maharashtra chief minister, said the citizen's charter, which requires every public authority to publish citizen's charters listing its commitments to citizens, is already in the bill.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday made a passionate appeal to Hazare to end his fast. But the 74-year-old campaigner has refused to end his fast until the three key demands are met.

Deshmukh had met Hazare in the afternoon and then appraised the prime minister about Team Anna's demands.

As all of us very much want Anna to end his fast, we must be very wary of this government and what it says.The breed of whole political class is full of deceit and treachery.So the agitation must continue till the system which has become totally rotten is gradually replaced through better and thoughtful process of rebuilding this nation which we all call Bharatmata.
