Government's Lokpal bill a 'jokepal': Kejriwal

“The bill that the government is bringing is not a Lokpal bill, it is a jokepal bill,” an irked Kejriwal said at a press conference Thursday, a day after talks between the civil society members and government representatives ended without a consensus on key issues.
Kejriwal said the meetings held so far were a “drama”.

“Government has already formed a bill and it is going to bulldoze its own bill. Whatever meetings we have done so far, were only a drama,” he said.

"The government has frittered away a huge opportunity for taking the credit for drafting a strong Lokpal bill,” he added.
