"Laws were enacted for women and atrocities against women increased. So this will also increase corruption," Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav told media outside the Parliament.

“Corruption will increase further. Now no one will sign on any file or take any decision. There will be an atmosphere of indecision in the country,” he added.

Lokpal Bill finally gets Parliament nod

Parliament on Wednesday passed the crucial Lokpal Bill with the Lok Sabha adopting the measure as amended by the Rajya Sabha after a short discussion.

Samajwadi Party and Shiv Sena members, opposing the bill, staged a walk-out in protest, as their counterparts from other parties, including Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Leader of the Opposition Sushma Swaraj, supported the measure.

Referring to the Bofors case, the Samajwadi Party leader said, "After the Bofors incident, the country could not get any new artillery gun. Now file movement will be stopped and everything will be passed on for the next government. This is the state of affairs."

When it was pointed out that it was only the Samajwadi Party which did not support Lokpal, he said, "Others are for votes but we are concerned about the country."
