New Delhi, Apr 8(ANI): The deadlock over the anti-corruption Lokpal Bill is likely to end tomorrow, social activist Anna Hazare said here on Friday.


Hazare's comment came following a meeting between Union Ministers and Hazare's emissaries.


Union Human Resource Minister Kapil Sibal, Law Minister Veerappa Moily and Minority Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid met Arvind Kejriwal and Swami Agnivesh


Earlier in the day, Hazare, who is on a fast-unto-death for the Bill, had said that they have suggested co-chairpersons for the joint committee to draft the Bill.


Addressing his supporters at the Jantar Mantar in New Delhi, Hazare said: "The people's voice has reached the government and they can't ignore them."


Hazare also said that they have rejected the government's offer of setting up of the committee by a letter of the Law Ministry.


He also emphasized that there should be no "tainted" ministers in the joint committee comprising civil society members.


"If there is a chairman from the government side then the Cabinet will have to accept the recommendations of the committee on the Bill," Hazare said.


The 72-year-old went on a "fast-unto-death" on Monday demanding that the government introduce a bill to tackle corruption immediately, and that politicians alone not be in charge of drafting that bill. (ANI)
