Team Anna Friday blamed the ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA) for the failure to pass the Lokpal bill in the Rajya Sabha and said the onus was on the government to get it cleared.

"The onus in on the government and they should have told the parliament members that we (all) are bound by the resolution passed by the house and the only thing is that we have to work on the mechanics," Team Anna member Kiran Bedi told reporters here.

She said they would continue to campaign for a strong and effective Lokpal.

The Rajya Sabha failed to pass the Lokpal bill Thursday. The house was adjourned sine dine amid chaos, putting a question mark on the future of the anti-corruption law.
