Mudslinging against Lok Pal panel criticised

Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: Besmirching the reputation and undermining the credibility of the non-official members of the committee appointed to draft the Lok Pal Bill is totally unwarranted, Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan said here on Tuesday.

In a statement, he pointed out that both the non- official members of the committee, Shanthi Bhushan and Prashant Bhushan have impeccable credentials and they do not require certificates from anybody. Even in the hypothetical case of some members' credentials being suspect, the focus should be on what they have to say and not what they are. He said there could be no two opinions on the need for a robust and independent ombudsman to eradicate corruption. Mudslinging will merely derail the just and worthy cause for which India against Corruption is fighting, Dr. JP said.
