Hyderabad: The Lok Satta Party today welcomed the Union Government decision to constitute a committee comprising representatives of the Government and civil society to draft the Lok Pal Bill.
In a media statement, party Working President D. V. V. S. Varma said the Center had no alternative than bowing to public opinion in the wake of social activist Anna Hazare’s fast seeking constitution of a powerful and independent Lok Pal.
Inspired by the success of the current movement against corruption, people should now focus on bringing about electoral reforms and cleansing the political system. There could be no real change in their lives without a change in the nature of politics, Mr. Varma added.(NSS)
