NEW DELHI, Apr 15 (PTI): On the eve of the maiden meeting of the 10-member Joint Committee tomorrow to draft the Lokpal Bill, Government today said it has an open mind on the issue.
"The meeting is taking place tomorrow. We are going there with an open mind. The government, civil society and common people - all have one target that there should be greater transparency and responsibilities should be clearly fixed in the bill," Minority Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid, who is on the panel, told reporters here.
His statement came a day after activist and committee co-chairman Anna Hazare said that the bill proposed by the civil society will not cover higher judiciary and that their representatives in the drafting committee would be "flexible".
