"The select committee, headed by Minister of State in Prime Minister Office (PMO) V. Narayanasamy, has already sent a notice that the bill be immediately taken up in the Rajya Sabha," Shinde told reporters here.
He added, "The Lokpal Bill has been passed from the Lok Sabha and has gone to the Rajya Sabha. The select committee in the Rajya Sabha had recommended 13 amendments to the bill and that were also considered by the government."
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath earlier Thursday said, "Our priority is to pass the Lokpal Bill."
