New Delhi: The incoming Narendra Modi government may well corner credit for key anti-corruption and pro-governance bills that UPA-II failed to pass despite a last minute bid to push the legislations through Parliament.

The Modi government will take a call on UPA-II’s unfinished agenda with cabinet secretary Ajit Seth asking ministries to compile a list of ordinances, pending and lapsed bills that would put up before the new regime.

The bills include anti-corruption and public service measures the Manmohan Singh government had, under Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s prodding, tried to legislate before dissolution of the 15th parliament.
