AAP’s Jan Lokpal should be compared with Modi’s Lokpal in Gujarat: Shanti Bhushan


Swaraj Abhiyan leader Prashant Bhushan on Friday claimed the Delhi government’s new Janlokpal Bill was different from what was drafted during the Anna Hazare-led anti-corruption movement, as the appointment and removal of an independent ombudsman will now be done by the state government.

Calling Janlokpal bill as ‘Jokepal,’ the former Aam Aadmi Party leader on Saturday held a news conference and used the opportunity to slam his former party colleagues for what he said causing deception to people.

He later tweeted, “By providing that Delhi Lokpal will investigate corruption of Central govt in AAP’s Jokepal Bill under AK has ensured that LG will not allow&it fails.”

His father Shanti Bhushan said, “It is as big a betrayal of Anti-corruption movement & people as ‘Janata Party imposing emergency’ would have been.”

Yogendra Yadav, another former colleague of Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, said, “Futile to compare with JanLokpal of IAC days, even with Uttarakhand Act. This should be compared with Modi’s Lokpal in Gujarat.”

Yadav also urged his supporters to tweet using the hashtag #AAPKaJokePal, which had become a top twitter trend since Saturday morning.

Here are some of the tweets being posted under this hashtag.

Yogendra Yadav, another Swaraji also attacked Arvind kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party over the matter of Lokpal bill.
