Manmohan Singh to convene UPA meet on Lokpal today
New Delhi, June 21 (ANI): The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, will convene a meeting of United Progressive Alliance (UPA) leaders on Tuesday as part of efforts to ascertain views of the alliance partners over the drafting of the Lokpal Bill.
The meeting, which will be held at Dr. Singh's 7 Race Course residence this evening, will consult the constituents of the ruling alliance over issues such as bringing the post of the prime minister under the ambit of Lokpal.
There has been divergence of views among UPA allies on the issue. While the Congress and the NCP have expressed opposition, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam is reported to be supporting it.
The government has already given hints that it would convene an all-party meeting in July to discuss the inclusion of the post of the Prime Minister under the Lokpal's purview. (ANI)
