Rahul Gandhi's anti graft bill to be passed in todays cabinet meet

  • 5 years ago
The UPA government appears all set to take the Ordinance route on five Bills, which Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has been pushing for.

The Bills were supposed to be taken up in the last session of the 15th Lok Sabha, but the same could not happen due to disruptions over various issues, including the Telangana Bill.

Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor has even said that non-passage of these Bills was a "setback to the nation".

With Lok Sabha polls around the corner, the Congress believes these Bills may help revive its dwindling fortunes to an extent.

Experts say the Congress will try to hardsell these anti-corruption laws along with the Lokpal Bill and RTI to revive its Lok Sabha poll campaign and even counter the corruption charge against the UPA government.

Rahul has already targeted the BJP over non-passage of these Bills, accusing it of creating hurdles and being non serious on the issue of fighting corruption.
