Lokpal Bill approved by Anna Hazare and Govt. will be effective in curbing corruption
Long awaited Lokpal Bill has finally been passed by the Parliament. The select committee's bill has the support of Anna Hazare
, the Congress and the BJP. However, the former member of Team Anna, Arvind Kejriwal
and his political outfit Aam Aadmi Party has termed the Lokpal Bill passed by the Parliament as a jokepal and has said that it will not help in curbing the menace of corruption.
"Yes this bill will help in controlling the corruption. No law
is perfect. To made Lokpal Bill perfect some changes were made
in it. The fight for this bill was going on since last 40
years and I am happy that it has been passed by the Congress,
it is one of the biggest achievement of this Govt. I think.
Aam Aadmi Party is opposing the changes in the bill because
now they don't have any issue to fight for. They need
something to talk about, thats why they are opposing the
Nirupam, Congress Spokesperson
"Lokpal Bill which has been passed by the Parliament has loop
holes. The select committe which drafted the bill was biased.
Power of control must be in the hands of Lokpal, not in the
hands of CBI. The rich corrupts may get away by bribing. The
bill has provision of punishment for the complainant if he/she
files a false complain. This provision will deter people from
lodging complaint against the corrupts. It is surprising how
BJP & Congress have suddenly became Anna Supporters."
Anand Kumar, Leader, Aam Aadmi Party
