Hectic efforts to break the deadlock over Lokpal were on for the second day today as Team Anna presented a fresh draft for consideration by the government.

Even as both sides have differences on three contentious issues, Team Anna submitted a draft which will be taken to Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, the chief government negotiator, sources said.

After the 90-minute meeting, both sides maintained that the discussions were good but declined to go into specifics of their deliberations.

Three members of Team Anna -- Arvind Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi and Prashant Bhushan -- held talks with Law Minister Salman Khurshid, who was accompanied by East Delhi MP Sandeep Dikshit and Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit's close aide Pawan Khera.

"It was a very good meeting but there is nothing concrete," Khurshid said.

"There is no resolution as of now. Talks are continuing. There will be further discussions," Bhushan told PTI.
