AAP Government’s Lokpal Bill is ‘jokepal’; says Prashant Bhushan (Part 2)
New Delhi, Nov 28 (ANI): Swaraj Abhiyaan leader Prashant Bhushan on Saturday accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of playing the “biggest fraud” on people by diluting the provisions of the Jan Lokpal draft while former law minister Shanti Bhushan demanded his resignation. Bhushan read out certain provisions of the draft Bill, which is yet to be made public by the Delhi Government. He claimed that Ministers and officials of the Centre were put under the ambit of the proposed legislation “deliberately” to provoke confrontation. He said Kejriwal does not like to be questioned like “Modi” so he has chosen not to make the contents of the Bill public. The Bill purportedly says that a four-member selection committee, comprising the Chief Minister, Speaker, Leader of Opposition and Delhi High Court Chief Justice would appoint the Lokpal, while the removal can be ensured by a motion in the Assembly with two-thirds majority.
