The drafting of the Lokpal bill by a joint government-civil society committee virtually hit a dead end as members from both sides decided to forward their respective drafts to the Cabinet in the absence of a consensus on some of the contentious provisions.the two sides were not able to come to a consensus. But, how does it make sense that the civil society committee has also agreed to submit their draft to be considered by the cabinet? Why would the cabinet agree to any of their proposals when the members of the committee set up by the government have already scuttled it?

Well in a way it is the best option. The UPA government is well aware that a bill drafted and accepted between them and the civil society will face hurdles in the Parliament. As such if the government decides to present both the bills to the Parliament, then there is a chance of getting a bill with majority of the recommendation from the civil society incorporated get passed, as most of the political parties will afraid to be labelled aiding corruption if they have not accepted them.
