New Delhi, Aug 22: Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh today termed as “good idea” the suggestion made by Team Anna that representatives of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Rahul Gandhi should talk to them on differences over the Lokpal Bill.


“Good idea,” the Minister told reporters when asked about Team Anna's suggestion after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that government was open to a reasoned debate.

Anna Hazare, who continued his fast for the seventh day today, asked the Prime Minister to send his representatives to discuss the Jan Lokpal Bill.

Ramesh said the Lokpal Bill introduced in Parliament should not be seen as a standalone legislation.

Complaining that “nobody is paying attention to whatever we say” on Lokpal Bill, Ramesh said, “I think the criticism of the Government (on the issue) has been somewhat unfair.” PTI
