New Delhi: BJP on Thursday kept the cards close to its chest on the proposed debate on Lokpal issue in Parliament on Friday, saying it will wait and see in which form the government holds the discussion and then take a call on the matter.

BJP Central Core Group discussed the situation arising out of the Anna Hazare agitation on Lokpal Bill and the stand the party should take during the debate on the issue in Parliament.

Though informal channels of communications between the government and opposition are active, BJP is waiting for a concrete and final word on which clause will be used to hold the debate, sources said.

"We are not aware as to the form in which the discussions will take place.  As and when the Government conveys to us, we would devise our strategy accordingly," BJP Chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

He said BJP wants that the fundamental premise of passing an effective Lokpal Bill in accordance with the sentiments expressed in Jan Lokpal Bill should be respected.
