SC directs Centre to set up Lokpal 28.4.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Paving the way for more transparency in governance, the Supreme Court on Thursday observed that the Lokpal Act in its current avatar was an "eminently workable piece of legislation and there is no justification to keep the enforcement of the Act under suspension." Dismissing the Centre's contention, the top court gave the Lokpal Committee the go ahead to appoint the rest of the members, including an eminent jurist, even if there was no Leader of Opposition (LOP). "If, at present, the LOP is not available, surely, the chairperson and the other two members of the Selection Committee, namely the Speaker of the Lok Sabha and the Chief Justice of India or his nominee, may proceed to appoint an eminent jurist as a Member of the Selection Committee under Section 4(1)(e) of the Act." The bench comprising Justices Ranjan Gogoi and Navin Sinha further found that Acts undergo amendments all the time and that does not mean the operation and execution of the law should be halted. "Attempts at achieving better results ...

AAP didn't deliver on any promise: BJP 18.4.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Taking a jibe at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over its manifesto, BJP leader Vijender Gupta said on Monday that the Arvind Kejriwal-led party has failed to fulfill the promises made in its 70-Point Action Plan, released at the time of Assembly elections. "The failure covers the entire gamut of public services, right from Jan Lok Pal to regularisation of unauthorised colonies," he said. Quoting the RTI replies that he got from the Delhi government, Gupta said the AAP promises of passing the Delhi Jan Lok Pal Bill and of reducing corruption in the state remain unfulfilled. "No major step has been taken. The RTI reply received mentions only general measures taken by the Directorate of Vigilance, which have existed for so long. Despite publicity, no study was done to bring out the fact that corruption has been reduced. There were certain procedural lapses in the Jan Lok Pal Bill, which needed correction. These have not carried out, keeping the Bill in abeyance," he said. Further, regarding the opening of 20 new ...

Can't implement Lokpal Bill, Centre tells Supreme Court 29.3.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The Union government on Tuesday informed the Supreme Court that it cannot operationalise the Lokpal because the Parliament needs to clear several proposed amendments. Representing the government, Attorney General (AG) Mukul Rohatgi said, "In the current scenario, it is impossible to constitute the Lokpal Bill because there are more than 20 proposed amendments that need to be cleared." In the Lokpal Bill, the Chief Justice of India, the Prime Minister, the Speaker and the Leader of Opposition (LoP - a Constitution post), would select the committee that would investigate allegations of corruption against public officials. However, since the current Lok Sabha does not have an LoP, the Bill needed to be amended to include the leader of the main opposition party, a non-Constitutional post in the committee, the AG explained. "(Mallikarjun) Kharge is the leader of the main Opposition party, but the government did not give him the status of Leader of Opposition," Rohatgi told a bench comprising Justices Ranjan ...
