Opposition BJP and Congress today expressed their scepticism over the Jan Lokpal Bill cleared by the Delhi government, and claimed it was brought by the AAP dispensation under their "sustained pressure".

BJP's Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta said, "if it is true then its our victory as tabling of Jan Lokpal Bill has been one of our main demands."

"The AAP government did not intend to bring the Bill and it has acted under compulsion. There are always doubts about anything done under compulsion and so we will go through the Bill before any comment on it," Gupta said.

Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken too expressed reservations about the Bill approved by the government, adding, his party will not accept any "diluted" form of it.

"We want the same Jan Lokpal Bill that AAP government had introduced in the Assembly on its 49th day and then stepped down accusing Congress of blocking its passage," Maken said.

"Congress will strongly oppose if the Bill proved to be a diluted version of the previous Jan Lokpal Bill the then AAP government had brought in its first term," he added.

Both BJP and Congress have been protesting against AAP government demanding it to table the Jan Lokpal Bill in the Winter Session of Delhi Assembly which began today.

While BJP MLAs raised the issue in the Assembly session, Congress workers led by Maken earlier staged a demonstration outside Vidhan Sabha demanding tabling of the Jan Lokpal Bill.
