Congress president Sonia Gandhi will meet Gandhian Anna Hazare and other representatives of civil society to discuss the lokpal bill on Saturday.
"The meeting between team Anna and Sonia Gandhi is confirmed for tomorrow (July 2)," Aswathi Muralidharan, a member of the NGO Parivartan which is canvassing support for the lokpal bill, told IANS.
The meeting is scheduled for 4.30 p.m. It was earlier scheduled for June 30, but was cancelled.
Former top cop Kiran Bedi, who is part of the civil society team, Friday tweeted that it was better that they will be meeting Gandhi Saturday, now that they have met the opposition parties and know their point of view.
"Meeting of team Anna with SG (Sonia Gandhi) at 4.30 pm. Better, now that we could read BJP's and other opposition parties' mind," Bedi said.
Team Anna has been meeting political party leaders to build a consensus on the bill drafted by the civil society. The team met Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders on Friday.
