Govt sends proposal to team Anna to break impasse

Waving a sheet of paper at the Ramlila Maidan, activist Arvind Kejriwal said the government has sent a proposal which, he said, has nothing new and none of the demands of the team has been met.

"We have received a proposal from the government which is nothing but the Government's Lokpal Bill. None of our demands has been included. There is no agreement between civil society and government," he told Hazare's supporters.

Kejriwal also dismissed media reports of an agreement reached between the civil society and government, terming them as false.

"TV channels are reporting that there is an agreement. But the reports are wrong. There is no agreement," he said.

Indore-based spiritual leader Baiyujji Maharaj, who held talks with Hazare in the morning, said no agreement has been reached between the two sides.

"Yes. It is true that no agreement has been achieved between the two sides," he told a television channel when asked to comment on Kejriwal's remarks.

"I can't say that," he said when asked whether there would be an agreement between the sides by Monday evening.
