The UPA government is "unperturbed" by protests as its Lokpal Bill is "one of the best" and it was following all Parliamentary procedures, Union minister E Ahamed said today.

Asserting that Parliament's "importance cannot be reduced", the Minister of State for Human Resource Development (HRD), while replying to queries on Anna Hazare's token fast at Jantar Mantar today, said the UPA government "is committed" to checking corruption.

"That's why we brought this Bill, the Lokpal Bill is one of the best bills."

"If you want to make a small issue a bigger issue, you can have it. But so far the UPA government is concerned, we are not perturbed.... Parliament is supreme.... We are always following Parliamentary procedures. Parliament's importance cannot be reduced," Ahamed told reporters here.

He, however, added, "There may be some opinion about the provisions of the Bill. Anybody may very well ventilate their sentiment. Anybody can move an amendment because it is a democracy."
