Cautious Prithviraj Chavan says Anna Hazare stir will end soon

Exercising caution, chief minister Prithviraj Chavan on Sunday said the ‘unrest’ in Delhi will end soon. The CM was making an oblique reference to the ongoing stir by Anna Hazare, demanding a strong Lokpal Bill.

“The use of technology can help bring transparency in administration and tackle corruption,” Chavan said, while speaking at the inauguration of Rajiv Gandhi Academy of e-Learning at Shiv Darshan in Pune.

“Soon all government processes and procedures too will be done through internet, which will help curb corruption,” he added.

Meawhile, deputy chief minister and senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar said the NCP wants a strong Lokpal bill.

He said the deadlock on the Lokpal Bill will be resolved through dialogue between the Centre and Team Anna.

When asked whether the Prime Minister and the judiciary should be brought under the purview of the Lokpal as demanded by Team Anna, Pawar said: “That will be explained by our senior leader (read NCP chief Sharad Pawar) only.”

“Let people decided whose bill they most like and I hope that the Union government will take a right decision,” he added.
