Cabinet nod for Lok Ayukta bill, likely to pass on 5 Oct

 

The Goa cabinet today approved Goa Lok Ayukta Bill - 2011, which would be placed before the state legislative Assembly during the session beginning from October 5.

Chief Minister Digambar Kamat, briefing reporters after the cabinet meeting, said certain amendments suggested by the Centre had been made.

"We will table the bill during the coming session," he said.

Goa Lok Ayukta Bill, 2003, which had been passed by the assembly in 2007, was sent back when it was forwarded for Presidential sanction. The Union Government recommended a few changes.

Civil society groups in the state have been demanding that Goa have a Lok Ayukta.

Former Karnataka Lokayukta Santosh Hegde had recently said that in view of illegal mining and Coastal Regulation Zone scams, Goa needed a Lok Ayukta.

The common man will congratulate the Government for reviving the long overdue Bill... In a civilized responsible society--there is no room for corruption.....Infact the huge multiplication of wealth of some Politicians while just for a short time in power...needs to be automatically investigated by this agency....

The figures of the wealth of the Central Ministers--was made public recently and highlighted in the media. The multiplication of wealth as much as more than 10 times in just 2 years while in power--needs to be investigated by the Janlokpal --to reveal the secret of becoming so rich in so short time....
