    New Delhi: As next year's Lok Sabha elections inch closer, the two major parties - Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are pushing more to pass the Lokpal Bill in the Parliament. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal is critical and saddened by Anna Hazare's support to the current Lokpal Bill.
    According to reports, "I am a little saddened by Anna's support to the government Lokpal Bill," Kejriwal said addressing a press conference on Sunday.
    "May be Anna is not completely informed about the bill. When we meet him we will try to explain him about the loopholes, Kejriwal said.
    "Anna's health is very important for the movement and the country and he should immediately end his fast," the AAP leader said.
    The current Lokpal will remain under govt's purview, Kejriwal said.
    He slammed Rahul Gandhi and said the Congress is misleading the nation on lokpal.
    "The Lokpal Bill in its current form, won't send a mouse to jail, forget a politician," Kejriwal said.
    The net result of passing this Lokpal is that Rahul Gandhi will get some credit, Kejriwal said.
    Arvind Kejriwal, who was part of Anna Hazare's original movement for Lokpal, stressed the need to bring the CBI under the purview of the new corruption watchdog.
    Meanwhile, the BJP too insisted that the party was always supportive for a strong Lokpal Bill. Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley said that his party will support the Bill even without a discussion.
    "The Bill should be passed in Parliament on Monday. BJP is even willing to pass this Bill without any discussion in the House, in case any Congress ally does not allow House to function," Arun Jaitley stressed.
