Social activist Anna Hazare Sunday said there was no need to call a special session of parliament for tabling of the Lokpal (ombudsman) Bill, which is scheduled to be introduced in the monsoon session.

"There is no need for a special session of parliament as much money has to be spend on it. It can be introduced in the monsoon session," he told reporters here.

Hazare Saturday broke his 97-hour fast for a stringent anti-graft law after the government accepted most of their demands.

A 10-member government-civil society committee will prepare the draft of the Lokpal Bill by June 30.
