Strong anti-graft law will be in place in 3-4 months:Khurshid

"Centre is committed to putting in place the "strongest" anti-corruption",Khurshid said.

The central government would bring in stringent anti-corruption law and electoral laws in which the corrupt and those convicted will not be able to contest elections,Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid said today.

The legislations would be brought in the coming winter session of Parliament,he said at a function organised by the Congress’ minority cell here.

“We are also talking to political parties on whether state funding of elections is possible. Various new laws,including whistleblowers protection law and Public procurement law,would be brought,” he said.

The Centre was committed to putting in place the “strongest” anti-corruption system available across the globe,he said.


In the next 3-4 months,the country will have a strongest anti-corruption law and “we will implement it in total sincerity”,he said.

Khurshid said the Centre had taken in principle decision to implement Kerala model of reservation in all states for government jobs.

‘We want to follow Reservation policy of Kerala and in central jobs,the same reservation would apply which kerala had adopted for state jobs’,he said.

The government was also hoping to bring in Judicial Accountability Bill,he said adding “we do not want independence of Indian judiciary to be compromised in any way”.
