Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L K Advani on Friday said the Jan Lokpal Bill has several inherent flaws due to which Parliament may find it difficult to pass it in the present format.

"I know what are the flaws in the provisions of the Jan Lokpal Bill due to which it will not get passed. And this, I tried to explain to them (Team Anna) yesterday," Advani told a group of students from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) who called on him.

"I also told (finance minister) Pranab (Mukherjee) and the government that look, these people are emotionally attached to the title 'Jan Lokpal Bill' so assure them whatever be the final shape of the Lokpal Bill after amendments, do continue to call it the Jan Lokpal Bill," he said at his residence.

"They (Mukherjee) said we will think about it," said the top BJP leader, adding that his party would support any legislation that was aimed at ending corruption.
