Delhi government on Thursday may announce the amendments in its Jan Lokpal Bill as suggested by the veteran anti-corruption crusader, Anna Hazare.
A reliable source told jantakareporter.com that either either Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal or his deputy Manish Sisodia will announce today about the changes being made in the Bill proposed by Hazare.
The Gandhian, while meeting senior AAP leaders Kumar Vishwas and Sanjay Singh, had reportedly asked the government to make the selection committee more broad base and include two more persons. The veteran Gandhian has also suggested that there should be an inquiry by a High Court judge for removal of a Jan Lokpal.
The government has agreed to accommodate both the changes.
There were discussions if the Bill needed to be sent back to the cabinet but the chief minister was advised that since the announcement of amendments will be made in the assembly, there will be no need for the cabinet to approve it again.
A senior civil servant said, “The House is supreme and, therefore, the Bill with changes today can be passed in the current session.”
The much-anticipated anti-graft bill known as Delhi Jan Lokpal Bill 2015 was presented in the assembly on Monday. Kejriwal had called this a historic day and described it as the ‘strongest anti-corruption law of Independent India.’
