The bill is to be presented in Rajya Sabha tomorrow.
The opposition in Rajya Sabha, if they have eaten salt of India should ask for changes in Lokpal Bill and resubmit to Lok Sabha.
Lok Sabha will then make necessary corrections and re-submit to Rajya Sabha for presentation.
Finally when both the houses approve then President may put his seal of approval. Then the bill becomes a law.
If lot of complications happen then President may call for a joint session of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha to consider Lokpal Bill.
