Glad supremacy of parliament hailed, says Sharad Pawar

New Delhi, Dec 12: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar Monday said while he did not get an invite, it was good that the supremacy of parliament was hailed during the Lokpal debate at Jantar Mantar during Team Anna rally.

‘Good that all political parties at Jantar Mantar emphasised the importance of parliament. We cannot overlook parliament,’ Pawar told reporters.

‘There are many discussions, seminars, some in open, some in close, it does not make a difference,’ he said.

‘They said they had sent the invite to my office, I did not get it but it’s ok, parliament will debate it. Our party has this line that we want a strong Lokpal bill, and we will present this point in the meeting with the prime minister,’ Pawar said.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has called a meeting of government allies Tuesday.
