Lok Satta Party Working President D. V. V. S. Varma has expressed his happiness over Members of Parliament cutting across party lines supporting the Lok Satta plea for constitution of Lokayuktas in States along with the Lokpal, and a National Judicial Commission to deal with higher judiciary, excluding it from the Lokpal purview.

In a media statement issued here today, Mr. Varma pointed out that the Lok Satta has been fighting for the creation of an effective, strong, and independent Lokpal. It conducted two round table conferences in New Delhi and Hyderabad on the Lokpal Bill, brought about a consensus on most provisions, and communicated them to all political leaders in the form of amendments to the Union Government’s Bill.

Congratulating all those who fought along with the Lok Satta for the creation of strong anti-corruption mechanisms, Mr. Varma hoped the Parliamentary Standing Committee and Parliament would give shape to a Lokpal, Lokayukta Bill that reflects public opinion.
