Countrywide Protests if Jan Lokpal Bill not passed

Kiran Bedi, key member of Team Anna, warned the UPA government to start the nationwide protests if the Jan Lokpal Bill is not passed in winter session of Parliament.

The former IPS officer said that Team Anna is not against Congress, but the onus for getting a Bill passed lies on the party in Power - Congress. If Congress fails to pass the Bill in the winter session, they would trigger the Ramlila Maidan-like protests in more than 300 cities across the country.

Speaking to media persons in Allahabad, Bedi said that the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the Congress President Sonia have promised to bring a strong Lokpal Bill in the upcoming session starting from November 22.

She said that Team Anna is analysing the situation and expects the Congress will keep its word. If the bill is not introduced and passed in the Parliament, the country would witness another agitation on a larger scale.
