BJP on Friday slammed the Delhi Government for its attempts to get the anti-corruption legislation Jan Lokpal passed “unconstitutionally” and suggested it to strengthen existing Lokayukta in the state to check graft.
“This government is pushing Jan Lokpal deliberately in an unconstitutional manner re-strengthening the fact that AAP favours anarchy and pays scant regard to the constitutional authorities,” BJP state president Vijay Goel said.
“There is already a Lokayukta in Delhi and a Lokpal Bill has been passed by Parliament. There is no need for the AAP govt to push for Jan Lokpal Bill. Instead it should focus on strengthening the existing Lokayukta for which there is enough scope and need. This would help to curb the corruption effectively,” he said.
Goel also met Delhi Bar Council officials to push for its demand for cancelling license of Law Minister Somnath Bharti.
“The next date for the hearing has been fixed for March 7,” a release issued by Delhi BJP President’s office said.
The least number of women candidates have been fielded by the Congress which has given tickets to just five women contestants.
