GoM on corruption meets; Sibal, Chidambaram absent

Two keys members of the GoM -- HRD Minister Kapil Sibal and Home Minister P Chidambaram -- reportedly could not attend the meeting as they were briefing media on the Lokpal bill.
The meeting was of a brief duration.

The seven-point terms of reference of the GoM, headed by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, include fast-tracking of all cases of public servants accused of corruption and ensuring full transparency in public procurement and contracts, including enunciation of public procurement standards and a public procurement policy.

The terms of reference are on the lines of the five-point action plan outlined by Congress President Sonia Gandhi at the AICC Plenary here in December last to fight corruption.

The GoM also includes P Chidambaram, Sharad Pawar, A K Antony, M Veerappa Moily, Kapil Sibal and M K Alagiri.
