New Delhi: The Jan Lokpal Bill is likely to be approved by the Delhi Cabinet tomorrow as its draft has almost been finalised by a panel headed by Chief Secretary.  

According to an official, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today held a long discussion on the Bill in a meeting attended by lawyer and AAP leader Prashant Bhushan, advocate Rahul Mehra, Cabinet ministers and senior government officials.  

“The Cabinet meeting is likely to be held tomorrow (Tuesday) and the agenda is Jan Lokpal Bill,” said the official.

A source said the government is taking all steps to meet its February first week's deadline to pass the anti-corruption Bill in a special session of Delhi Assembly from Ramlila ground.

On a query about Delhi Police's reported objections on holding Assembly session in Ramlila ground citing law and order issue, he said the government was taking one step at a time and would address the matter once it is ready with the draft and approval from the Cabinet.

The anti-corruption Bill is largely based on Uttarakhand Lokayukta Bill.
