Sonia blames BJP for defeat of Constitution bill

"But yesterday, we saw their real face. The strength we wanted to give to Lokpal Bill, they did not want it and voted against it," Gandhi told reporters here.

She did not respond to questions on how the government will get the bill passed in Rajya Sabha as it does not have the numbers. "Happy New Year to you all," she said as media persons persisted with the query.

Her comments came as government faced an embarassment in Lok Sabha last night as it could not muster the requisite two-third majority for passing the bill that provides Constitutional status to Lokpal and Lokayuktas.
