Hazare also said the session should be extended if needed to pass the proposed legislation.

"I would say if some parties are creating ruckus, pass the bill in din... so many bills are passed in din," he said on Sunday.

"If needed, government can also extend the session," he added.

Asked about Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal's comment that he may not be aware of the provisions of the bill, Hazare said: “I have read the bill, maybe he has not read the bill.”

The Lokpal Bill, which has been passed by the Lok Sabha and majorly amended by a select committee of the Rajya Sabha, was tabled for debate in the Upper House on Friday.

The government has said it is committed to passage of the bill in the Winter Session of Parliament, which ends on Friday.
