New Delhi: Adopting the provisions of the Jan Lokpal Bill, the Uttarakhand government has called for a special Assembly session on Monday to pass the Lokayukta Bill.

It is said that the provisions of the Team Anna have been adopted in the proposed bill.

Speaking with Dainik Jagran, Uttarkhand Chief Minister BC Khanduri said that the state Cabinet will mull over the bill on Saturday and give its decision.

Khanduri said that special emphasis has been laid on the administrative and financial independency of the Lokayukta so that corruption cases can be investigated without any bias.

“The bill cannot be made public before the Assembly’s nod but it will prove to be a role model for rest of the states in the coming years,” said Khanduri.

When asked about uniformity in the Team Anna’s Jan Lokpal Bill, Khanduri said, “Attention has been paid that there is no imbalance in rest of the machinery and suggestions from Team Anna have been kept in mind.”

According to sources, the appointment of Lokayukta comes in the wake that people do not have to visit the state and every district should have potential officers.

Chief Ministers, Ministers, former Chief Ministers and other senior officials will come under Lokayukta’s ambit.
