M'laya govt to introduce Lokayukta Bill



SHILLONG, December 11: Succumbing to the demand of RTI activists in Meghalaya, the State government today decided to finalize the draft Lokayukta Bill before it can be introduced during ongoing Winter Session of the State Assembly.
Briefing reporters after the Cabinet meeting held in Shillong on Tuesday, Meghalaya chief minister Dr Mukul Sangma said, “We would finalize the draft Lokayukta Bill on Thursday before it can be introduced during this Winter Session.”
Earlier in the Assembly, Dr Sangma said that the Government intends to address the issue of corruption.
“We will introduce an effective Lokayukta which will address issues of corruption in a manner befitting to the emerging circumstances,” he said.
“The Lokayukta Bill will also cover the Chief Minister and lower rung employees,” the Chief Minister asserted.
He said, “The Cabinet minutely studied the details of the Bill and found out that certain fine-tuning of the Bill is needed.”
The chief minister further asserted that the government wanted to make the matter (Bill) much more focused to tackle corruption.
