New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday hoped that the impasse over the Lokpal issue would end soon.
“I hope so,” was the reply of Singh when asked if the present deadlock over the Lokpal issue would end Saturday.
Ahead of the debate on the issue in Parliament, the Prime Minister said he hoped to write to Anna Hazare again.
Hazare had on Friday shot off a letter to the Prime Minister, saying he would break his fast if Parliament agrees to his three key demands but will continue his protest till the legislation is passed.
On the possibility of the resolution being passed in Parliament Saturday, Singh said, “It was up to Parliament.”
