Appoinment of Committee for Drafting Lokpal Bill? (was it democratic?)
1.There is a procedure provided for formation of committee for drafting a bill
to be introduced in a parliament.Only members of parliament can be the members
of such committee.Therefore introduction of non-members of parliament is a breach of rule.
2.The procedure followed to introduce non-members of parliament is too undemocratic.It is unknown for
established procedure of law that self appointed leader of agitation makes selection of the members of committee.
3.The socalled draft of Jan Lokpal Bill was prepared by 3-4 persons (when its versions are often changing),
who are less constitutional law experts and more professionals.The draft was not translated in all regional
languages and circulated in public for public debate.Those who are so enthusiastically supporting ' Civil Society' do not know
the drastic provisions in Jan Lokpal Bill.I doubt whether Hajare knows them?
4. No public discussions were held and public consensus was obtained before the draft was proposed to the Government.How it can be claimed it is a Jan Lokapal Bill
5. The Members of the Parliament are nor briefed about the draft.
Rules established procedure of law and basic norms of democratic process is violated?How We can trust the persons who have no regard for legal procedure would help us to fight against corruption?
