Anna Hazare met CPM General Secretary Prakash Karat today, and will meet UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi tomorrow.
The Gandhian activist has been in Delhi since Monday meeting leaders of political parties - amongst them Ajit Singh of the Rashtriya Lok Dal, and senior BJP leader LK Advani - before a crucial all-party meet on July 3 that will discuss the draft for the Lokpal bill.
Mr Hazare said he did not understand why the Prime Minister couldn't build consensus amongst his cabinet colleagues. "The Cabinet belongs to India, the people in the Cabinet are our people. So what is their problem in taking the decision? They should be able to take it for the country. We are going to meet all the parties now including the BJP. We will also meet Sonia ji tomorrow and tell her that if the PM is saying this then what is the problem? "
The Lokpal Bill, which is meant to check corruption within politicians and bureaucrats, was being drafted for the first time by a committee that included non-elected activists like Mr Hazare.
The joint effort between the government and these activists ended in chaos - ministers on the committee have delivered one draft of the Bill, Team Anna has prepared another.
