On why the CBI should be brought under Lokpal
If the Lokpal does not have its own investigative machinery,then it becomes a post-office. The Lokpal would receive a complaint,forward it to the CBI,the CBI would investigate and forward its report to the Lokpal. The Lokpal would take the matter to court. Why have this post-office? Then you might as well wind up the Lokpal.

On claims that A Raja was merely continuing NDA policy on spectrum allocation
For Raja to say that I am following Arun Shouries footsteps is wrong. I have said this many timesRaja,stop following my footsteps,follow my advice. My advice is turn an approver.

We tried to bring about an institutional arrangement with NGOs,which is the NAC. They have now decided not to proceed on the Lokpal bill. They said the amoeba has changed and let the new amoeba handle it.
