New Delhi: Union Science and Technology Minister and former Maharashtra chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh has been appointed by the Government to negotiate with Anna Hazare and his associates. The decision to appoint Deshmukh to start talks with Team Anna was taken after he met Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Agriculture Minister and Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar on Tuesday.

Deshmukh has had the experience of dealing with Hazare during his stint as Maharashtra's chief minister.

The Government is also discussing various other options to break the Lokpal deadlock.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has called an all party meet and sources say that the Centre may also bring the prime minister's post under the ambit of the Lokpal.

At the all-party meet the Government will try to get the Opposition parties to support the idea that Team Anna cannot be allowed to bypass Parliament on the Lokpal issue.

  1. 01) Team-Anna wants to negotiate with a Government Representative with only a clean record!

    02) Vilasrao Deshmukh had to quit for failure after Mumbai Blasts and also have cases against his involvement in Adarsh Housing Society Scam and others!!

    03) Dr. Manmohan Singh's Government, surely, knows how to sabotage the socalled talk!!!
