The Anna Hazare team on Wednesday met CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat here to explain the civil society position on the Lokpal Bill ahead of the all party meeting on the issue.

Civil society activists Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi called on Mr. Karat this morning at CPI(M) headquarters to discuss the Lokpal Bill and to inform him about Team Anna’s views on the proposed legislation.
