Include Dalits, minorities in Lokpal panel

From Ummid

New Delhi: Dalit group All India Confederation of SC/ST Organisations Tuesday urged the government to give representation to backwards and minorities in the proposed Lokpal panel.

Presenting his 'Bahujan Lokpal bill', group's chairman Udit Raj said: "The government should give representation to these communities not only in the Lokpal committee but also in the process of its selection."

Raj said he will Saturday submit his version of the anti-graft law to the parliamentary panel examining the Lokpal bill.

He added that corporates too should be brought within the ambit of the Lokpal.

Raj said enormous funds are allocated to schemes for these communities, but development is hampered due to corruption, diversion of funds and misutilisation.
