NEW DELHI, Dec 7 � Rejecting the recommendations of Parliamentary panel on Lokpal Bill, Team Anna today claimed that they will not have any impact on corruption and will instead dismantle the existing anti-graft mechanism, reports PTI
�I think the recommendations of the (Parliamentary) Standing Committee, whatever they are, the Lokpal which is coming, I don�t think this will have any impact on corruption. On the contrary, it is likely to dismantle whatever exists in the name of anti-corruption in this country,� activist Arvind Kejriwal said.
Claiming that the Standing Committee proposes to divide CBI into three parts, Kejriwal said the move will cripple the investigating agency.
�So by taking excuse of Anna andolan rather than strengthening the anti-corruption system, they seem to further weaken whatever exists,� he said.
Asked whether Anna Hazare will go ahead with his proposed fast, he said it was for the Gandhian to take a call. �As far as fast is concerned, it is Anna who is going to decide.�
�All that I can say is we are committed till the end for a strong Lokpal Bill,� he added.
Kejriwal was of the view that it was �extremely difficult� at this stage to say anything because Standing Committee�s recommendations were not final.
�The government can accept or go further than that. So let�s wait and watch,� he said.
