AAP Lokpal, worse than Jokepal, says Prashant Bhushan

New Delhi: Rebel AAP leader Prashant Bhushan slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the Lokpal bill. He claimed that the Delhi government’s new Janlokpal bill is different from what was drafted during Anna Hazare-led anti-corruption movement.

The Swaraj Abhiyan leader further added that as AAP had called UPA’s Lokpal bill as Jokepal, this bill is even worse than that. AAP has designed it to fail, he said.

According to Delhi government’s new bill, the appointment and removal of the independent ombudsman will be done by the state government.

Bhushan said that this is a tactical move by Kejriwal as he is playing grounds for another face off with the center government.

He said that all power of appointment and removal is with state government and AAP knows that the center government won’t let it pass and then AAP will create another fiasco that BJP and PM Modi is not letting them work.

Swaraj Abhiyan leader, and a founding member of AAP, Yogendra Yadav also criticized it and called it betrayal with the public. Bhushan demanded that Kejriwal should resign.

He said that the Lokpal will be chosen by Chief Minister, Speaker, Leader of the Opposition and Chief Justice of Delhi, which mean two out of four are from ruling party, three from the political class and, as a result, power will be with government only. He said that our fight was about the appointment and removal of the Lokpal should be free from political interference.
