New Delhi: Clearing his stand on the drafting committee of the Lokpal Bill, social activist Anna Hazare said there will no changes in the panel as it would help him defend his position on the issue.

Brushing aside the controversy over the drafting committee, Hazare said, “There is no need for any change in the drafting panel. Complete transparency will be maintained and the panel’s meetings will be aired through video conferencing.”

Baba Ramdev had raised questions over the formation of the panel and Arvind Kejriwal urged the media not to find any controversy over the composition of drafting committee.

Lashing out questions on the movement, Hazare said that he would keep fighting for public interest till death. “If people think this is blackmail, I will continue to do so,” said Hazare.

“The drafting committee will start its work on April 16, he said and added that through Lokpal Bill, 90 per cent of the corruption would be weeded out and for rest 10 per cent more efforts were needed.

He said those associated with the drafting of the Bill should make their assets public.

Asked if the Bill was not introduced in the Parliament despite the approval of the joint committee, he said, “I have full faith in the Parliament but we will protest if the Bill is not passed.”

The copies of the drafted Bill would be sent to all villages as well, he said.
