    Govt is corrupt, not sincere about Lokpal: BJP

    New Delhi: BJP leader Yashwant Sinha, in his speech during the Lokpal Bill debate in Lok Sabha on Tuesday described the UPA Government as 'the most corrupt Government' and said it is knowingly doing unconstitutional things.

    "The Government is knowingly doing unconstitutional things. The most corrupt Government is in power today," said Sinha.

    Suspecting 'sincerity' of the Government, Sinha said, "Winning a Lok Sabha poll is the most difficult job. MPs are not here to enjoy luxuries, we are answerable to the people."

    "Demand for a Lokpal has been there for a long time, but the Intensity was less," he added.

    Taking a dig at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's Lokpal Bill debate speech in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday, Sinha said, "The Prime Minister's speech was like a farewell speech."

    Warning the Government not to take Team Anna lightly, Sinha said, "The Government can't underestimate the civil society movement."
